In our response, we welcome the proposals made by BEIS/Ofgem and extend our expertise and knowledge to help deliver the proposal. We note that the proposed framework set out within the consultation provides a good foundation on the path to achieving Net Zero. We note that we do not have a preferred option in relation to ownership of the Future System Operator, but we will support and work well with any of the proposed models. In order for the Future System Operator to be effective and credible, we recommend that the FSO maintain independence not only from industry but also from Government. We welcome further communication and clarity on the overall FSO reform timeline.
