National Grid Outlook seminars

Winter Outlook Report and Seminar

Each year National Grid, the gas and electricity system operator, produces their Winter Outlook Report setting out expected gas and electricity supply and demand for the coming winter. On 15 October 2015, Ofgem hosted a seminar so that National Grid could present and explain their analysis for winter 2015/16. The seminar also provided an opportunity for industry and market participants to discuss the supply and demand outlook.  

Summer Outlook Report

National Grid also provides a detailed report into a range of issues that the electricity and gas industries may face during the summer months. The report covers topics including how demand responds to high temperatures, European interactions and transmission issues.

Please direct comments on the report to National Grid in the first instance. However, you may also send comments or information to us. Please state whether or not your comments should be considered confidential.
