Security of supply inquiry

Inquiry status: Concluded

Committee hold a one-off evidence session on Tuesday 24 November.

Scope of the inquiry

The hearing will investigate the following topics:

  • National Grid’s predictions for security of supply in the UK electricity and gas markets
  • The availability of electricity generation this winter
  • The likelihood of insufficient margins and National Grid’s tools to respond to these
  • Next winter - are early reports of even narrower margins to come accurate?
  • Long-term trends in electricity generation and consumption, and whether mechanisms like the Capacity Market are sufficient to cope with them
