Developing a Gas Markets Plan Together

What is GMaP?

Gas will be key as we transition to a net zero, sustainable energy system. However, we need to manage the challenge of high levels of uncertainty about the future direction and pace of change.

To continue to deliver safe, reliable gas supplies at the best value for consumers, a process is needed to proactively and strategically  consider how market frameworks need to change across all potential futures.

To achieve this, National Grid Gas Transmission, in collaboration with industry, policy-makers and stakeholders have launched the Gas Markets Plan (GMaP).

The GMaP brings together a broad range of stakeholders to prepare today for the gas market frameworks of the future.
