This consultation document sets out Ofgem’s draft Forward Work Programme for the extended period of 2019-21. It also sets out how we intend to simplify our regulatory approach, with the aim of reducing burdens for industry, and how we will operate in an efficient and effective way.
Given the complexity, pace of change and uncertainty facing the energy sector, it is important that as the GB energy regulator, we provide a clear statement of intent and forward vision, so that industry and consumers understand the actions we plan to carry out and the outcomes we seek to deliver during the period 2019-21.
Our draft Forward Work Programme also responds to priorities set out by the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, in his speech on the future of the energy sector on 15 November 2018.
We welcome your views on how we can help ensure that all consumers receive fair, competitive services from the energy market.
Please respond to this draft Forward Work Programme consultation by noon on Friday, 15 February 2019, by emailing your response to FWP@Ofgem.gov.uk. Unless you ask us not to, we will publish responses on our website. We will publish our final Forward Work Programme 2019-21 before the start of the new financial year.
