Committee to hear evidence from energy networks on net zero

The Industry and Regulators Committee will speak to energy networks about the future of the energy system and the role of Ofgem, the energy regulator. The Committee will discuss the potential for renewables and hydrogen to play a greater role in the energy system, whether enough investment is being allowed for the net zero transition, and how the transition should be regulated.
