Report on electricity distribution expenditure 2005/2006

Ofgem annual report (29 pages, PDF) providing data on operating and capital expenditure data for the 14 main electricity distribution network operators in Great Britain for 2005/2006. The report "also shows Ofgem's current view of the Regulatory Asset Value (RAV) for each DNO as at 31 March 2006. The RAV will be finalised at the next price review". A data table (Microsoft Excel) provides a breakdown of expenditure by activity.

The data show operating expenditure overspends (compared to the figures used in 2004 to construct price limits) for half of the operators, and significant capital expenditure underspends for almost all operators.
