Promoting resilient sectors

Our aims for this theme are as follows.

  • To increase understanding amongst our stakeholders, including investors, Government and independent bodies, of the role and value of independent regulation in delivering positive long term resilient sectors for consumers.
  • To position UKRN as a vehicle of collaboration between regulators of essential services, including by continuing to work together to advance regulatory understanding of how best to set the allowed cost of capital and the impact this has on the long-term resilience of our sectors.
  • To build relationships with other independent bodies e.g. National Infrastructure Commission (NIC), Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA), Greater London Authority (GLA), Future Cities Catapult to inform and influence future long term investment and infrastructure planning and to ensure stakeholders understand the regulatory model.
