Targeted Charging Review: a Workshop

SAVE THE DATE - TARGETED CHARGING REVIEW: A WORKSHOP - WEDNESDAY 26 APRIL
We invite you to attend a stakeholder workshop on the Targeted Charging Review. This will be an opportunity to share and discuss initial views from the consultation.
This event will be held on 26 April 2017 at 14.00 - 17.00 in central London. Further details including an agenda will be available to registrants before the workshop.
We are consulting on reviewing and changing some of the charges that electricity transmission and distribution network users pay for using the networks. We think that the current way the ‘residual’ charges are applied could lead to potentially detrimental differences in costs for different groups of consumers, and inefficient investment decisions resulting in increasing costs for consumers overall.
We are proposing a Significant Code Review (SCR) to consider:
whether changes to the residual charges would be in the interests of consumers
how residual charges could be changed to better promote the interests of consumers
whether changes are needed to the current charging arrangements for smaller embedded generation (EG), and when any such changes should be implemented
whether any changes to the residual charging arrangements are needed before the completion of our proposed SCR, and when any such changes should be implemented.
We are consulting now on proposed principles to guide us in carrying out an SCR, if we decide to do so after considering responses.
We are also setting out our views on some of the changes to network charges for storage for consultation, that we think would best be taken forward by industry.
Please note that due to limited availability, only one person per organisation is permitted to register.
