The review of DNO's business plans for 2023 -2028 continued and following the final submission of DNOs’ final business plans, Ofgem ran a series of online open hearings in March 2022.
These hearings follow the call for evidence which we shared with you earlier this year here. The hearings provided an opportunity for Ofgem and stakeholders to scrutinize the companies’ business plans and feedback evidence on various aspects of our plan.
Focus was around company-specific issues, based on our business plan and was a great opportunity for our stakeholders to put their points across directly to Ofgem to support the plan and stress the importance of those aspects of the plan that they have helped develop or are key to their organisation.
The next step following the open hearing is to wait for the draft determination to be published by Ofgem. Keep an eye out on our engagement pages for more information.
