This document provides a high level summary of our regulatory principles and the existing regulatory regimes in Great Britain (GB). It includes project assessment methodologies and criteria, which apply to investments in transmission and gas storage infrastructure.

We are publishing this in accordance with the Article 13(6) of the EU Trans-European Energy Infrastructure Regulation (the TEN-E Regulation). This requires National Regulatory Authorities to publish their “methodology and the criteria used to evaluate investments in electricity and gas infrastructure projects and the higher risks incurred by them”.

We hope that this information will be a useful high level summary of regulatory arrangements in GB for interested parties, including existing and prospective investors. More detailed information on our regulatory regimes is already available on other parts of our website. We reference these in this publication.
