Kirath Bharya, associate at Gowling WLG, discusses the implications of the decision for market participants and consumers.
The TCR is part of Ofgem’s wider review of network access and charging, which is reviewing how licensed electricity network operators recover the costs of maintaining and balancing their networks.

In November 2019, it published its ‘ Targeted Charging Review: Decision and Impact Assessment’.
