NEA response to Ofgem VCMA Governance Drafting Consultation
NEA response to Ofgem VCMA Governance Drafting Consultation
Post on 29th Jan 2021
NEA’s response to the Ofgem VCMA Governance Drafting Consultation. NEA is supportive of the vulnerability and carbon monoxide allowance for gas networks. We believe for the allowance to create best value, it should have sufficient focus on supporting vulnerable customers, both in the make up of project portfolios and through addressing carbon monoxide. Additionally, we believe that all delivery partners must meet licence obligations to treat customers fairly.

NEA response to Smart meter policy framework post 2020: minimum annual targets and reporting thresholds for energy suppliers
Post on 15th Jan 2021
NEA supports the smart meter rollout, and broadly the mechanism for attributing targets to suppliers for the next phase. However NEA believes this could be improved through the addition of targets specifically to upgrade legacy prepayment meters, as well as introducing broader incentives to accelerate the upgrade of legacy prepayment meters.

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.
