IGov has consistently argued that the codes and licences that govern the energy system in GB need to change in order to better enable a low carbon transformation. Our thinking and research has included blogs, consultation submissions, a roundtable event, a number of papers and case studies. Our take away message is that self-regulation of Codes should cease and should be replaced by a Code Manager. Detailed information on all out outputs in chronological order are below. For a detailed overview of energy industry codes, the issues they create and some solutions to these we recommend our 2015 working paper. For a higher level overview we recommend the 2017 journal article in Utilities Policy (open access).
