Ofgem launches Future Insights programme

Ofgem has today launched its Future Insights programme with the first in a series of discussion papers exploring the transformation of the energy system over the coming decades.

With the Future Insights programme, Ofgem is planning to develop a strategic vision to keep the regulation of the energy system relevant and responsive in the face of energy system change.

The first paper in the series provides an overview of key developments in the energy system. Upcoming papers will explore some of these developments in more detail, including new ways to heat the home and the prospects for local energy markets.

Martin Crouch, senior partner for improving regulation at Ofgem, said: “We want to put consumers at the heart of the debate around the future energy system as it transforms in the coming decades. Our Future Insights programme will help us develop a strategic vision so we can protect consumers now and in the future. We invite stakeholders to join in the debate.”
