Purpose of the Steering Group

The Steering Group has been set up to provide cross-industry leadership to develop a Gas Markets Plan focused on the priorities and changes to the gas market over a 10-year horizon.  The Group will highlight the signposts for change and action, the impacts on the gas market frameworks, and the types of initiatives needed to prepare for the gas market of the future.  These will be aspects on which National Grid Gas (NGG), and other relevant stakeholders, should focus on in the forthcoming years to maximise consumer value and prepare for the future.
