Gas Supply and Distribution - UK - March 2017
“Ofgem has introduced a new regulatory framework, known as the RIIO model, for the current eight-year price controls for gas transmission and distribution networks, which run from April 2013 to March 2021. Under the new framework, the revenue earned by network operators is strongly linked to incentives, innovation and outputs. The changes mean that companies need to adopt a more long-term approach to infrastructure investment decisions, with increased focus on active asset management over traditional network investment. There is also an increased focus on innovation and new technologies that facilitate the efficient operation of the infrastructure network and provide operational cost savings.”
