Regulator rejoins Open Networks steering group

Ofgem is stepping up its involvement in Open Networks after being urged to take a more leading role in the flexibility market reform programme by Octopus Energy. In an open letter, the regulator’s interim director, energy systems management and security Eleanor Warburton writes that Ofgem intends to rejoin the Open Networks steering board in order provide a "steer on regulatory and policy issues where required". The programme, which is run by the Energy Networks Association, is designed to improve co-ordination and standardisation of the disjointed market for flexibility services.
