About The Event
20:20 Vision - RIIO-2

A technical paper evening focusing on the Ofgem RIIO-2 business plan and gas distribution price control for 2021-2026.

An estimated half a billion pounds is due to be invested and this will be the first chance to hear all about it and meet the Chief Executive and Directors who will be giving details of the plan. The event will include an exclusive from Wales & West Utilities with a first view of their business plan that will come into effect from 2021.

CEO of Wales & West Utilities (WWU), Graham Edwards, will provide the event introduction, which will be followed by the first opportunity to see the Wales & West Utilities growth forecast for the 2020s.

There will be a review from the regulator and a first-time reveal of the proposals to invest half a billion pounds in the gas network in south west England and Wales. This is a scoop for the South West Section so book your place to ensure you're one of the first to hear about these plans.
