On Thursday 27 April, Ofgem published an open letter providing an update on priorities for electricity network charging and connection reforms. Ofgem highlighted that work on transmission charging reform through the Transmission Network Use of System (TNUoS) Taskforce had restarted as of 26 April, and that the Taskforce should target change implementation between 2024 and 2026 at the latest. The regulator also noted that its Strategic Transmission Charging Reform programme is exploring the role of TNUoS in the context of different options for wholesale market design under consideration as part of the Review of Electricity Market Arrangements (REMA), with plans to publish an open letter on this. On distribution charging reform, Ofgem said it is relaunching work on the Distribution Use of System Significant Code Review (DUoS SCR), with timelines and further details to be set out by early summer 2023. It also noted that work on Electricity Connections has been progressed in recent months, alongside National Grid Electricity System Operator and DESNZ.
