Help shape our business plan (RIIO)

Here you can find information about how we’re consulting with you and other stakeholders on our next business plan for RIIO-T2. We would like to hear your feedback, so we can make sure our plan reflects what’s important to you.

Help shape our business plan for RIIO-T2

We’re currently developing our next business plan for the RIIO-T2 period (2021-2026), and need to submit our final plan to Ofgem by the end of 2019.

We’re involving you through an engagement process that has three phases:

  1. to establish your priorities
  2. to build the detail of our business plan with you
  3. to check our plan will deliver what you need.

We are now in the final phase of our engagement with you. Our first draft business plan is available below for your feedback to ensure that our plan reflects your views.

Chapter 1

We continue to build our business plan with you, for you

Our draft RIIO-T2 business plan for the years 2021-22 to 2025-26 is now available for your feedback.

Over the last two years, we've carried out our most extensive ever listening exercise to understand your priorities and future requirements.

Please let us know what you think because this plan has been built with you, for you.
