Competitions in Connections Code of Practice

CICIn June 2014 Ofgem opened their review of the market for new connections to the electricity distribution network. They subsequently published, in January 2015, their proposed solutions to the issues identified and the best way to implement them.

Distribution Networks Operators (DNOs) were tasked with developing a Code of Practice (CoP) in consultation with stakeholders and this was completed collectively with the Electricity Networks Association (ENA). The resultant Code of Practice was approved by Ofgem in July 2015, with an implementation date of October 2015.

The ENA have created an additional site specifically for the Code of Practice. For further details please go to

The Competition in Connections Code of Practice requires DNOs to publish an annual report to demonstrate their compliance with the code. Our Annual Report for the reporting period 2015-16 can be found here:
