We would like your views on potential improvements to the Electricity System Operator (ESO) regulatory and incentives framework for 2020-21. In August 2019, we proposed streamlining the roles and principles framework for the RIIO-2 period by moving from four to three roles. We are now consulting on the subsequent changes we would like to make to the two supporting guidance documents: the ESO Roles and Principles guidance and the Electricity System Operator Reporting and Incentives (ESORI) guidance document. The proposed changes would give effect to our decision to streamline the roles framework for the 2020-21 incentives year.

We are also proposing modest changes to the evaluation framework and reporting requirements based on stakeholder feedback and lessons learnt so far.

We have published a letter outlining these changes and have also published the proposed updates to the two guidance documents for 2020-21: the ESO Roles and Principles guidance and the Electricity System Operator Reporting and Incentives (ESORI) guidance document.

We would appreciate your views by 4 February 2020.
