Consultation: Energy code reform: governance framework
BEIS and Ofgem are seeking views on their proposed institutional governance framework for the energy codes.
Closes: 11:45pm on 28 September 2021
BEIS and Ofgem are seeking views on proposals for energy code reform, developed with the help of feedback to their 2019 consultation.
In the earlier consultation they set out that their desired outcome for energy code reform is an institutional governance framework that is forward-looking, agile, easy to understand, and able to accommodate a growing number of market participants. They also proposed 2 governance frameworks that they believed would be capable of delivering this outcome. They have now developed these proposals further and are consulting on a preferred option of Ofgem being designated as a ‘strategic body’ over the energy codes, with separate ‘code managers’.
They are also looking for views on:
- detailed elements of their proposals that were not addressed in the previous consultation
- the impact assessment which sets out some of the estimated costs and benefits of their proposed reform
The consultation is open to all to respond, but they would like views in particular from:
- existing code parties
- wider industry players
- consumer groups
- existing code administrators
