ABSTRACT
The article reveals that there would be profound changes to electricity distribution networks over the period 2010 to 2015, as the British Office of Gas & Electricity Markets (Ofgem) sets out its priorities for price controls. The regulator said it wanted to encourage distribution network operators (DNOs) to be more responsive to customer needs. Companies would have to carry out customer research before submitting high-level business plans. The regulator also said it would give strong incentives for DNOs to tackle climate change.
