Ofgem is Great Britain’s independent energy regulator. Our principal aim is to protect the interests of current and future energy consumers, especially vulnerable people. We operate in a statutory framework set by Parliament. The government is responsible for setting the policy for the energy sector and proposing any changes to this statutory framework. We have a clear role to play to support policy issues, but we do not direct overall policy in the sector.
