Tim Yeo, MP for South Suffolk, has called for more scrutiny over how the distributed network operators (DNOs) conduct their businesses.

Speaking at the Renewable Energy Association’s ‘From 2020 to 2030: the latest on UK and EU energy targets’ event, the chair of the energy and climate change committee expressed frustration at how DNOs have managed to escape scrutiny over the years despite being “almost effectively a monopoly” and representing a significant amount of customers’ bills.
