This call for input is the first part of our discussion paper to engage with the debate on and whether we need to make changes.
The discussion paper outlines:
what standing charges are
standing charges, network charges and the price cap
how we expect standing charges to change in the future
standing charges and the domestic retail market
standing charges and the non-domestic retail market
