On 10th May, the Government published a consultation for a Strategy and Policy Statement (SPS) for energy policy, which sets out Ofgem's role in promoting the UK's net zero targets. Ofgem will be required to have regard to the SPS, and has a statutory duty to protect consumer interests in the reduction of greenhouse gases.
