To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with reference to Ofgem's consultation on Access and Forward-looking Charges Significant Code Review, when Ofgem and the Government plan to publish further details of a proposed holistic review of wider transmission charges.

22 October 2021
Transmission charging is a matter for Ofgem as the independent regulator. Having held discussions with industry parties, and received evidence including Scottish & Southern Energy Networks’ Transmission Charging Stakeholder Survey Feedback Report, Ofgem published a call for evidence on possible transmission charging reforms on 1 October 2021. It is available at: https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/publications/tnuos-reform-call-evidence.
The Government will continue to engage closely as Ofgem progresses this work, to understand how any decisions can help support delivery of a secure, net zero energy system at lowest cost to consumers.
