RIIO-ED1 price control

The RIIO-ED1 price control will set the outputs that the 14 electricity Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) need to deliver for their consumers and the associated revenues they are allowed to collect for the eight-year period from 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2023.

RIIO-ED1 is the first electricity distribution price control to reflect the new RIIO (Revenue = Incentives + Innovation + Outputs) model for network regulation. RIIO is designed to drive real benefits for consumers. It provides the companies with strong incentives to step up and meet the challenges of delivering a low carbon, sustainable energy sector at value for money for existing and future consumers.
 
This page provides you with information to keep you up to date with recent publications, stakeholder engagement opportunities, and key developments in the RIIO-ED1 price control review process.

In February 2014 we published our decision to settle Western Power Distribution's price control early (termed 'fast-tracking'). This followed our RIIO-ED1 Business plan assessment and fast-tracked consultation and our consultation on our methodology for estimating equity market returns.

We have now published an open letter seeking views on the revised business plans that the remaining DNOs have submitted to Ofgem. The DNOs have published these plans on their websites – at the links below:
