Details

Government and Ofgem are conducting a joint review of the current retail market design.

The review will:

  • identify ways for consumers to benefit from the transition to a smarter, more flexible energy system
  • ensure appropriate protections once the energy price cap is no longer in place
  • enable more innovation and new business models to enter the market
  • provide more opportunities for consumers to benefit, such as ways to sell their excess energy or trade it with their neighbours

Throughout the review we will be seeking views from:

  • the energy industry
  • innovators
  • consumer protection groups
  • academics
  • consumers

We will make further documents relating to the review available here.
