Regulation

Why are we regulated?

Gas networks are natural monopolies; consumers can't choose which network they want to use to transport gas to their homes and businesses.

To make sure that we and other gas networks don't exploit this and charge customers unfairly, we are regulated by Ofgem under a price control framework called RIIO.

Our performance

The RIIO-GD1 price control sets out the outputs that we must deliver for consumers and revenues we are allowed to collect (covering 01/04/13 to 31/03/21).

Our regulatory framework

Ofgem's RIIO-2 framework consultation is a critical decision point that will not only shape the industry for the next five years but out to 2050 and beyond.
