Extending competition in transmission industry group

We are developing the arrangements to introduce competitive tendering to onshore electricity transmission projects. To help inform and shape our work, we have set up an industry working group on ‘Extending Competition in Transmission’.

This industry group builds on the work of the ITPR industry group, facilitated by the Energy Networks Association (ENA), which met a number of times in 2015. The group is comprises a steering group in the first instance, and sub-groups working on discrete issues. 

The steering group evaluates Ofgem’s proposals, and designs and recommends mechanisms and solutions to address issues. The group also identifies potential barriers to meeting the government’s objectives and offers possible solutions.

On this page you can access outputs from the industry group. If you cannot find the information you are looking for, contact us at TransmissionCompetition@ofgem.gov.uk.

For further details on our role in developing the policy, see our competition in onshore transmission page.
