This section explains that, despite uncertainties over GB’s energy future, some decisions for our RIIO-2 plan must be taken now, whilst some can be deferred until there is greater certainty.
We outline the approach we have undertaken to ensure the business plan is consistent with how those stakeholder needs may change over time.
This part of the business plan describes how we will deliver the network capability that efficiently meets our stakeholders needs.
In our business plan, we explain how our asset base delivers network capability - which parts of our investment plans are impacted by our decisions on network capability. We outline the process by which our plan is built and tested to ensure the network capability we propose efficiently meets our stakeholders needs.
There are no significant changes to the proposed levels of network capability during RIIO-2 in our business plan, i.e. the initial and target levels of network capability are the same.
