The aim of the Gas Discretionary Reward Scheme (DRS) is to encourage gas distribution network operators (GDNs) to undertake activities to help address a range of social, carbon monoxide safety or environmental issues.

Under the RIIO-GD1 arrangements, the Gas DRS will run every three years, with a maximum reward of £12m available across the GDNs, over the price control.  The amount of the reward is determined by a panel.

The second RIIO-GD1 Gas DRS panel assessment will take place in 2018. The panel will assess performance between 2015-16 and 2017-18.
