Consumer Challenge Group

The Consumer Challenge Group (CCG) acts as a ‘critical friend’ to Ofgem to help ensure that the price control settlement is in the best interests of existing and future consumers.

Its members provide inputs and challenge which might not come through other means such as primary consumer research.

The CCG is not a decision making body but acts in an advisory capacity to help inform the Authority’s decision making processes.

We have set up a Consumer Challenge Group for the latest electricity distribution price control, RIIO-ED1. The CCG builds on the successful approach used in previous price controls as a more intensive form of engagement with experts in energy consumer interests.
