What happens

Summer to autumn (Q4) 2019

RIIO-ED2 framework consultation and decision. This stage encompassed a review of the overall RIIO electricity distribution framework so far and assessed if we needed to make any changes.

Summer to autumn (Q2/3) 2020

RIIO-ED2 sector-specific methodology consultation. This stage will encompass setting the price control methodology.

Winter 2020 (Q4) 2020

We will publish a decision on our methodology consultation and provide templates for network companies to prepare their business plan data.

Spring/Summer (Q2) 2021

We will ask network companies to submit their initial proposed business plans to us and the independent RIIO-2 challenge group.

We will ask network companies to submit their final proposed business plans to us and the independent RIIO-2 challenge group.

Summer (Q2) 2022

We will publish our draft determinations on the price control allowances and will consult on our proposals.

Winter (Q4) 2022

We will publish our final determinations on the price control allowances. We will also run a statutory consultation on the RIIO-ED2 licence.
