Ofgem’s Innovation Link launched the regulatory sandbox service in February 2017. It enables innovators to trial new products, services and business models without some of the usual rules applying.

We have now run two application rounds for the sandbox, called 'windows'. This document sets out what happened in the second window, which we launched in October 2017.
