While network regulation is a matter for Ofgem, the Government maintains regular dialogue with network operators including on their plans to prepare for heat pump and electric vehicle charging rollout. Effective integration of technologies such as heat pumps and electric vehicles will enable more flexible consumption, helping minimise network and system costs.
