This report sets out the key findings from our review of GB energy system operation and provides a recommendation to government. The aim of the review is to consider the current and future challenges facing GB system operation and assess whether we have the right governance framework in place to deliver the UK’s net zero emissions targets.

In the report we consider:

  • the energy system changes associated with achieving net zero;
  • the roles and functions the GB electricity and gas system operators could be required to perform to facilitate net zero;
  • the suitability of current system operation arrangements; and
  • potential options for alternative system operation models.
