THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely conference will focus on the future shape of regulation in the telecoms, water and energy sectors.
It is scheduled to take place at the time when the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) is considering submissions to its review of the regulatory regime for utilities.
The review is being conducted in order to develop models that can better deliver increased levels of investment in innovation and infrastructure whilst protecting value for consumers.
Planned sessions will provide an opportunity to gain insight on the progress of the review and initial thinking on the consultation responses, as well as to feed into discussion on the future shape of UK utilities regulation landscape.
Delegates will consider how best to reform regulatory systems so as to achieve the aim of incentivising the long-term investment in innovation and infrastructure needed to meet the challenges of evolving technology and climate change.
We also expect discussion on possible tensions between any such changes to regulatory focus and the established drive for highly competitive supply markets that are responsive to consumer concerns and focused on low prices.
Those attending will also examine the options for the future shape of the regulatory models - including a potential new single ‘super-regulator’ for utilities in order to deliver greater collaboration in areas such as data sharing, addressing cross-cutting policy issues and major infrastructure projects - and implications for the roles of Ofcom, Ofwat and Ofgem.
