Consultation on NIE Networks licence modification - transmission and distribution - RP5

Published: 24 November 2016

Consultation opened on 24 November 2016. Consultation closed 22 December 2016.


The Utility Regulator today publishes for consultation Article 17 and Article 14 licence modifications notice seeking to amend both the Transmission and Distribution licences held by Northern Ireland Electricity Networks Limited (NIE Networks).

This second consultation sets out the Utility Regulator’s (UR’s) proposed changes to the two licences held by NIE Networks. The modifications are made as a result of responses received to the September 2015 consultation and also Competition and Markets Authority (previously Competition Commission) comments on the same. The main impact of the modifications is to formalise the outcome of the Competition Commission’s FD.

This document is likely to be of interest to NIE Networks, electricity customers, other regulated companies in the energy industry, government and other statutory bodies and consumer groups with an interest in the energy industry. 

Copies of all documents can be made available in large print, Braille, audio cassette and a variety of relevant minority languages if required.

Responses to this consultation paper should be submitted by 12.00 noon on 22nd December 2016.
