This letter updates stakeholders on our arrangements to extend competition in onshore electricity transmission. It sets out the context for the work we have done to date and an overview of the documents we have published today on the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) model and the Competition Proxy model (CPM). This document also provides a forward view on our wider programme of competition in onshore electricity transmission networks and expected next steps, including how we propose to treat future projects that meet the criteria for competition.

Alongside this letter we have published an Impact Assessment (IA) on implementing the CPM and SPV models for future projects. We are consulting on this IA in relation to the implementation of the SPV model. Interested stakeholders should respond to the IA using the details on the front of the IA by 26th October 2018.
