We have developed our draft plan with you

On this page, you’ll find our RIIO-2 draft business plan for the years 2021-22 to 2025-26 along with an 18 page executive summary. We've also provided our plan on one page. Please let us know what you think because this plan has been built with you, for you.

 

We have developed our draft plan with you 

Part of being a responsible business is listening to our stakeholders, customers and consumers and acting on that feedback. Over the last two years we've carried out our most extensive engagement exercise ever.

We've engaged with over 900 individuals covering all our main stakeholder groups. We've also listened to over 10,000 household and business consumers through meetings, focus groups and surveys. 

We've provided more information about our emerging ideas for our business plan to you than ever before. And we thank you for your feedback. 


What you’ve said to us 

As consumers, you’ve told us:

  • I want an affordable energy bill
  • I want to use energy as and when I want it
  • I want a sustainable energy system.

As stakeholders, you’ve told us your eight key priorities as set out in the outer ring of the diagram below.
We have built our draft business plan around your eight stakeholder priorities and three consumer priorities.

 

You’ve also told us that you expect your views to make a genuine difference to our business plan. The independent stakeholder group has been making sure we take account of your views. 

Our draft plan uses a “baseline” built on a common scenario of future energy supply and demand patterns. We have developed it with other energy network companies. Our draft plan proposes ways that we can adapt to the future being different from  the baseline. For commercial and/or security reasons, the complementary supporting material will not be published and there are parts of our plan that have been redacted (black boxes).
