The Commission is currently reviewing the input methodologies (IMs), which it is required to do within seven years of setting them. We published our draft decisions papers, except for the Report on the IM review, on 16 June 2016. All papers and supporting documents, including draft amendments to the IM Determinations can now be found on the main IM review page.
One of the key topics for the current IMs review is emerging technology in the energy sector. Areas of focus include:
- Risk of partial capital recovery – the claimed problem is that emerging technologies may increase the risk that electricity networks become stranded.
- Efficient investment incentives – the claimed problem is that there may be inadequate investment incentives where investments:
- deliver benefits that are split among different parties along the value chain or that arise beyond the regulatory period
- face wider market or political risks to full cost recovery.
- Regulatory treatment of cashflows from emerging technologies.
