To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what assessment he has made of the implications for his policies of SSEN Transmission’s recent stakeholder survey on TNUoS, which found that 93 per cent of industry stakeholders would support reform of the current transmission charging regime.

This answer is the replacement for a previous holding answer.

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.
