Statutory consultation on a proposal to modify licences held by Transmission Owners, Electricity System Operator, and Gas Distribution Networks in extraordinary circumstances due to COVID-19. This statutory consultation follows on from our open letter of July 2020.

We remain focused on delivering the RIIO-2 programme for gas distribution, transmission, and electricity system operator price controls to the existing timetable. However, we recognise that COVID-19 continues to  present risks to the delivery of RIIO-2 programme.

In July 2020, we consulted on our proposals for a contingency plan. We received thirteen responses. After reviewing these responses, we propose the updated proposals as set out in our notice.

Any representations with respect to the proposed licence modification must be made on or before 20 October 2020 to RIIO2@ofgem.gov.uk.
