About The Event
Annual Hot Topic Event and BBQ

This year’s ‘hot topic’ event focuses on RIIO-GD2 - the next gas distribution network price control - with guests speakers outlining the challenges ahead and inviting input from delegates on what the networks should be undertaking for the next regulatory period. 

Ofgem's RIIO-GD2 framework consultation is a critical decision point that will not only shape the industry for the next five years but out to 2050 and beyond. As such, the RIIO objectives of encouraging network companies to play a full role in the delivery of a sustainable energy sector and deliver long-term value for money for existing and future consumers are more important than ever.

RIIO (Revenue=Incentives+Innovation+Outputs) is designed to encourage network companies to:

  • Put stakeholders at the heart of their decision-making process.
  • Invest efficiently to ensure continued safe and reliable services.
  • Innovate to reduce network costs for current and future consumers.
  • Play a full role in delivering a low carbon economy and wider environmental objectives.


The event will provide a great opportunity to hear about the future strategies that will support the RIIO framework, whilst being involved in lively debate and discussion with colleagues from across the industry.
