Exemptions from the requirement for an electricity licence: call for evidence

Closed 8 Mar 2021

Opened 30 Oct 2020


We want to understand more fully how the exemptions regime currently operates, and whether changes to the regime are needed to reflect government aims and objectives.

This includes how well the exemption regime has coped with the changing energy landscape and how exemptions are currently being used in practice.

Your evidence will inform a future consultation on changes to the regime, as part of a wider review.

The call is open to all, but we would like to hear in particular from anyone with an interest in the exemptions regime, including:

  • those benefitting from an exemption from the requirement for an electricity licence
  • those wishing to benefit from an exemption but unable to do so due to the requirements of exemptions legislation and/or policy
  • licensed stakeholders, consumers and trade bodies
