The CRU has today published a consultation paper on its proposal to grant two new gas network licences to Gas Networks Ireland (GNI). It is proposed to grant GNI a new licence to own and operate the natural gas distribution system and a new licence to own and operate the natural gas transmission system. These would replace GNI’s four current licences to carry out these functions. The new licences are intended to reflect the current regulatory and legal landscape in which GNI operates.
Submissions on the proposed new licences can be made to the CRU from today, 18 December 2020, until 02 February 2021.
