ABSTRACT
The article reports on the need for a change to the contractual and charging arrangements under which electricity from distributed generators is exported to the transmission network, according to the British Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem). According to the article, this could mean small generators lose some of their so-called embedded benefits. The regulator said it was up to the industry to come up with specific proposals.
