Response to Ofgem consultation ‘Extending protections for domestic customers who may have prepayment meters installed under warrant
Post on 08th Dec 2020
Overall, NEA is pleased that Ofgem is seeking to extend protections for domestic customers who may have prepayment meters installed under warrant (Electricity and Gas Supply Standard Licence Condition 28B). We fully support this approach and it will be necessary until at least mid-2025 when the smart meter rollout should finally largely complete.

NEA response to Ofgem’s RIIO 2 Sector Specific Consultation (ED2)
NEA response to Ofgem’s RIIO 2 Sector Specific Consultation (ED2)
Post on 17th Oct 2020
NEA has extensively engaged with Ofgem the DNOs to help shape this price control, through stakeholder meetings, workshops, and through working with Ofgem in the RIIO 2 working groups. NEA is so far pleased with Ofgem’s approach in the ED2 price control, especially the increased focus on stakeholder engagement and vulnerability. We believe, however, that there are several areas that require closer, additional consideration.
