A flexible grid for the future

Inquiry

** Following the announcement that a General Election will be held on 4 July, Select Committees will be unable to meet from 24 May and will cease to exist from 30 May until after the General Election. This work has therefore closed.**

 

This inquiry is here to look at how the grid develops, whether there is a need for one size fits all solution or whether more local solutions might deliver quicker benefits. The inquiry is likely to touch on planning, devolution of decision making, the potential for new pricing that reflects more local solutions, and REMA.

This inquiry is no longer accepting evidence

The deadline for submissions was Friday 25 August 2023.
