24 November 2020

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) today published its response and conclusions on:

  • Proposals for consequential changes following confirmation of the new post-2020 policy framework and a proposed clarificatory change to energy suppliers’ licence conditions regarding the Standalone Auxiliary Proportional Controller provisions, as set out in the 17 September 2020 consultation.
  • Proposals for an additional DCC licence condition relating to the DCC’s plans for Network Evolution, as set out in the 23 October 2020 consultation.

Following consideration of stakeholder responses, BEIS has published its conclusions and has laid the regulatory changes to the main body of the SEC and to energy suppliers’, energy network operators’ and the DCC’s licence conditions before Parliament, in line with the procedure under Section 89 of the Energy Act 2008.
