NGG as system operator (SO) provides forecasts of gas demand and key operational data on the gas market on its website. Last winter, there were concerns about the accuracy of NGG's gas demand forecasting data and the performance of its website. In response to these concerns, we proposed new financial incentives designed to improve NGG's performance in these areas. The majority of respondents supported our proposals. This document sets out our Final Proposals for these schemes and includes a statutory consultation on licence changes necessary to implement them. These proposals will help to improve the accuracy and reliability of the information NGG provides this winter.
