Future of Gas Steering Group

The Future of Gas Steering Group provides cross-industry leadership to develop and inform the Gas Market Plan programme and provides expert views on the evolution of gas market frameworks in the transition to a net zero future.

The Future of Gas Steering Group meets regularly (every two months) to discuss, debate and explore topics concerned with the future of gas, to signpost areas of change. Through the Steering Group, we explore initiatives needed to prepare for the gas market of the future and capture potential impacts to gas market frameworks and participants. The output includes gas market questions or focus areas that National Grid Gas, and other relevant stakeholders, should focus on and prioritise in the short term (2 – 10 year timeframe) to maximise consumer value and help the gas industry prepare to enable net zero ambitions.
