Winter outlook report
Our 2017/18 Winter Outlook Report was published on 12 October. The report presents our view of security of supply for the electricity and gas systems for the coming winter.
Each year our outlook reports evolve to reflect our stakeholders’ feedback as we endeavour to provide more useful information for you. This year, in response to your feedback, we’ve included a number of spotlights on the changing energy market. We also look at the Capacity Market and the new methodology to assess the electricity security of supply. We hope you find these informative.
We look forward to hearing your views on this year’s report. You can let us know what you think on Twitter using #NGWinterOutlook, by joining our LinkedIn Future of Energy page or by emailing us at [email protected] . You can also speak to us throughout the year at one of our industry events.
Review and consultation
The publication seeks your views on the electricity and gas supply and demand for the winter ahead. The responses we receive provide us with valuable insight and are essential to the development of the Winter Outlook Report.
The feedback we receive will underpin our analysis for winter 2018/19 and help us to provide a well-informed outlook to the industry when we publish the report in October.
