Review of the Northern Ireland Energy Retail Market

25 March 2021

Today we publish a position paper for its ‘Review of the Northern Ireland Energy Retail Market’.

This paper examines the existing state of domestic energy retail markets in NI and associated key consumer aspects. The analysis outlines the context to the regulatory approach to retail market regulation; and also provides relevant information on the developments of competition in the electricity and gas retail markets.

The paper is intended to be background to, and a precursor of, ongoing and further work to ensure our general regulatory approach to retail market regulation remains valid and up-to-date.
