Consultation description

In the technical update to the electricity market reform (EMR) white paper, the government announced that it intended to confer the EMR delivery functions onto the Great Britain system operator, National Grid Electricity Transmission plc (NGET).

The technical update acknowledged that as well as there being strong synergies between EMR delivery functions and the system operator’s current role, there are also potential conflicts of interest that could arise. A joint project with the regulator Ofgem was initiated to assess these potential conflicts of interest and propose mitigating action if shown to be necessary. This report sets out the findings of that assessment. It is the government’s formal response to the consultation ‘Synergies and Conflicts of Interest arising from the Great Britain System Operator delivering Electricity Market Reform’ which closed on the 29 January 2013.
