This document contains Ofgem’s response to government’s heat networks: building a market framework consultation.

We set out a number of issues for government to consider to ensure that regulatory regime will be practicable and capable of being regulated effectively, so that heat network customers are able to enjoy the expected benefits - such as our objectives, funding arrangements and regulatory design considerations.

Subject to a final policy position being taken that Ofgem is the appropriate body to appoint as regulator for heat networks, Ofgem remains committed to working with government on the design of a regulatory framework.
