Accredited Service Provider Scheme review

The Office of Energy and Climate Change is reviewing the Accredited Service Provider (ASP) Scheme to examine the continued need for and arrangements to deliver contestable energy connection services as regulated through the Scheme.

We released an Issues Paper for comment in June 2021, and received 42 written submissions in response, some of them very detailed . We also received input from direct consultation with a sample of ASP providers, NECA and with the three electricity distributors.

A Position Paper summarised the responses and presented the options for comment from 10 December 2021 to 25 February 2022. We received 24 written submissions to the Position Paper.

The feedback from this consultation is shaping the final recommendations.
