Ministers and officials are in regular contact with Ofgem to discuss a wide range of energy market and policy matters. These include the issues raised by our draft energy strategy and low-carbon ambitions for network investment and infrastructure. We will continue to work closely with Ofgem as we develop our plans in more detail.
