Citizens Advice response to Ofgem’s Call For Evidence – Transmission Network Use of System Charges
As the statutory consumer advocate for GB energy consumers, Citizens Advice seeks to ensure that there is cost-efficient development of energy networks to support Net Zero and that costs are met fairly. This aligns with Ofgem’s ambition to deliver Net Zero at the lowest cost to consumers. With the significant changes needed to how we generate and consume energy and system changes required to enable this, the principle of efficient development has never been more important.
We welcome the opportunity to respond to this Call for Evidence on Transmission Network Use of System (TNUoS) charges. Citizens Advice believes that it is valuable to explore where charges are not providing ‘useful’ signals and that there may be a good case for change where there is clear evidence.
