Distribution networks

Our priority is to protect consumers’ interests, which we do through the promotion of effectively functioning markets and networks.

We do this by removing barriers, for example by ensuring there is greater transparency of information to all parties including customers.

When necessary, we use our powers to monitor and address any behaviour or practices which may have an adverse effect on the way that markets and networks function.

The Gas Distribution Networks section contains information on the following areas of our work:
