Utility Regulator consults on proposed modifications to gas and electricity licences

Published: 05 January 2016

Consultation opened on 05 January 2016. Consultation closed 04 March 2016.


The Utility Regulator today publishes a consultation on proposed modifications to gas and electricity supply licences necessary to reflect market experience, process updates and legislative changes. The proposed changes affect the gas and electricity supply licences, the electricity distribution licence and the gas conveyance licences (distribution and transmission).

The majority of the changes outlined in this consultation represent a clean-up of licences and do not require a system or process change and will therefore have minimal impact on licence holders.  The consultation does include some modifications that seek to enhance existing consumer protection conditions, however consumers will see no direct changes to their services as a result of these modifications.
