Network operators were allowed to benefit at the expense of customers after Ofgem failed to enforce tougher price controls under RIIO-1, a government watchdog has concluded.
With the finalised framework for RIIO-ED2 released yesterday, the industry has praised Ofgem’s commitment to decarbonisation whilst pointing to the possibility of "going further".
There is still a "long way to go" in the transition from DNOs to DSOs, but if the incentives are set up right within the regulations, it will “drive the culture” of the networks.
‘Radical’ reform of the energy supply market is needed as future supply models face putting consumers at risk, Citizens Advice has warned.
A war of words has erupted between Citizens Advice and the UK’s energy networks companies over calls for consumers to be compensated for what the charity has described as years of overcharging.
EV charging schemes, such as smart charging and V2G, must be more tailored towards the needs of consumers or risk failure, Citizen Advice has warned.
In this round-up of news stories from the electric vehicle ecosystem, new research from Citizens Advice finds that a lack of transparency regarding EV tariffs is confusing consumers, and rapid chargers are on the rise.
