Elexon’s response to NIC consultation on the Future of Regulation 12 April 2019
The Government has asked the National Infrastructure Commission to assess what changes might be necessary to the existing regulatory framework to facilitate future investment needs in infrastructure focusing on energy, telecoms and water.
Elexon response includes that:
- data and easy access to data is key to unlocking the next wave of innovation
- new regulatory design should seek to avoid further costs from any proliferation of central services and that we believe the recently launched joint BEIS/Ofgem Energy Codes Review is an ideal opportunity to look at these issues
- consolidating the code governance landscape would be beneficial to innovators
