Price controls for independent distribution networks

Ofgem conclusions (PDF, 60 pages) on price controls and licence conditions for independent electricity distribution networks. The final proposals involve a relative price control for independent distribution network operators and distribution network operators operating out of area to link prices to those of the incumbent distribution network to which they are connected, but with a floor/ceiling of +/- 5 per cent (RPI-indexed) on changes to prices over the 10-year period of the control (2006-2016).
