Energy

As Net Zero and other market initiatives drive immense change within the energy sector, our experts ensure those ambitions are realised through smart design and management of complex market arrangements.

The Energy Lifecycle

Generation

Generation is the process of transforming primary energy sources (such as fossil fuels, nuclear energy and renewables) into electricity.

With our strong expertise in downstream technologies such as electric vehicles, we comment on and influence the debate on the sort of energy infrastructure we will require in the future.

Transmission

Transmission is the process of moving gas and electricity from where it is produced to distribution networks where it is distributed for use.

Hydrogen is one of a handful of new, low carbon solutions that will be critical for the UK’s transition to net zero. We help inform Hydrogen policies and are the secretariat to Hydrogen UK.

Distribution

The Distribution Network (both gas and electricity) transports energy from the transmission system to the end consumer.

Gemserv plays an important role in gas industry governance. For example, we administer the Independent Gas Transporter Uniform Network Code (IGT UNC).

Supply

Suppliers buy gas and electricity in bulk on the wholesale market and sell them to customers in the retail market.

We have been involved since the start of Ofgem’s Faster Switching Programme with the Master Registration Agreement (MRA), which has now been superseded by the Retail Energy Code (REC).

Smart Meters

Smart Meters, installed by suppliers, send meter readings via a dedicated communications network to suppliers.

We are the code administrator for the Smart Energy Code which sets out the industry rules for the GB smart metering programme. We have also supported the Alt HAN programme to design and manufacture a range-extending “alternative home area network” solution for the 1 million+ British households that are currently unable to enjoy the many benefits of smart metering because they live in blackspots.

Consumers

Customers can choose who they want to supply the energy that they use.

We have a team specifically tasked with ensuring that the voice of the consumer is included in the Retail Energy Code (REC). We support and advise a number of industry metering forums such as the Prepayment Metering Forum (PPMF) which is a working group established for the discussion of matters relating to all types of electricity prepayment meters including technical, operational, and regulatory issues that impact the operations of prepayment meters.

Micro Generation

Microgeneration is the small-scale generation of heat and electric power by individuals, small businesses and communities. Increasingly in the future, consumers and businesses will utilise these alternative power sources.

We are the administrator for Heat Networks Investment Project.

After a long wait, the Heat and Buildings Strategy is finally here
