The article reports on the efforts of operators to reduce the volatility of electric distribution charges. Views on ways to improve the application of the distribution charge calculation through a consultation launched through the Energy Networks Association (ENA). It is noted that networks want a wide range of stakeholders to participate in their ongoing consultation.
