Dear Gas Industry Colleague

As Chair of this new Future of Gas Forum Steering Group, I am delighted to invite nominations from gas industry stakeholders to become members.

We committed in the conclusions of our Future of Gas programme, The Future of Gas: how gas can support a low carbon future, to work with stakeholders to develop a long-term plan for gas industry change in Great Britain (GB).

The Gas Markets Plan will drive change through gas industry stakeholders working together in a proactive, co-ordinated way to shape markets, tackle complex problems and ensure all stakeholders have an opportunity to contribute to the GB gas market of the future.

The Steering Group has been set up to provide cross-industry leadership on the priorities and changes to the gas market over a 10-year horizon. The Group will highlight the signposts for change, triggers to act and the impacts on the gas market frameworks.  These will be aspects on which the Gas System Operator (GSO), and other relevant stakeholders, should focus in the forthcoming year to maximise consumer value.

We are looking for around 20 senior gas stakeholder representatives who can make decisions and commit time/resource.  They should have experience of representing their own sector in discussions about the future of gas, as well as working across the sectors that will be represented on the Steering Group.  We anticipate holding 3-4 meetings a year, with the first one this summer.

Members will represent their sector as well as their own company views.  They will also be responsible for disseminating group updates to their sector.

More information is provided in the Terms of Reference and the Nomination Process.

We welcome nominations to [email protected] by Friday 14 June 2019.
