The IGov institutional framework for energy governance: Co-ordinated national and local governance of electricity, heat and energy services. Since 2012, the IGov research project has examined how the energy system is governed, in GB and elsewhere, and what changes are necessary to bring about a secure, fair, zero-carbon system. In this blog, we bring together our proposals for the institutional frameworks that we argue are required. IGov has already published (in draft form) its proposals for the institutional framework at the GB level, centring on the proposal for a new institution, the Energy Transformation Commission, parallel to the Committee on Climate Change, to co-ordinate, engage and oversee the energy transformation process over time. We will also shortly publish a summary of project findings and recommendations as a whole. This blog focuses on the interaction between institutional frameworks at national and local level, and includes heat and market design.
