In April 2022, Ofgem and the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ) jointly decided to proceed with the creation of a new, independent Future System Operator (FSO).

We are consulting on our policy direction for the regulatory framework for the FSO, including the key features of its financial regulation and our emerging thinking on our wider regulatory approach.

We are seeking views from any stakeholders with an interest in the FSO. This includes the current system operators and all industry participants who will be impacted by our regulation of the FSO. We would also welcome responses from other stakeholders and the public.

This consultation is open for 7 weeks, until 02/02/2024. Responses should be sent to and clearly marked where considered to be confidential.
