Description: The aim of the programme is to undertake the necessary reform to the electricity market to ensure the UK can attract the investment in electricity generation needed to have a secure, affordable supply of electricity towards the end of this decade and in the longer-term and to meet its renewable and carbon emission reduction targets in the most cost-effective way. The outcome sought is an electricity market that can: attract around £70-75bn of investment in new electricity generation by 2020 and around a further £50bn to 2030; attract sufficient investment in development and retention of flexible capacity from the demand or the supply side to ensure sufficient capacity margins can be maintained; attract sufficient investment in low carbon generation to meet our climate change and renewable energy targets; and achieve these aims with minimum impact on consumer bills.
