    Aims for the Workshop

    Aims for the Workshop We are hoping to have a focused discussion under Chatham House rules about the value of distribution service providers versus distribution system operators.

Furthermore, we hope it will help the IGov team to develop a ‘whole system’ governance framework suitable for enabling an energy system transformation to that end, and to make recommendations to policy makers on that basis. Questions to Address Over the Day What
