Bright Blue responds to the UK Government’s decision to appoint Ofgem as the new regulator for heat networks.

Commenting, Joshua Marks, Senior Energy and Environment Research:

“Unregulated heat networks have caused nearly half a million people to suffer from uncompetitive pricing and a lack of transparency. The decision to allow Ofgem to act as regulator for these networks is welcomed to protect customers from these practices in the future.”
