To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, pursuant to the Answers of 12 March 2019 to Question 229808 and Question 229809 on Energy: EU Law, whether Ofgem's licensing mechanisms to recover costs for a new REMIT system require energy suppliers to pay increased fees to Ofgem.

In the event that domestic REMIT reporting systems are required, Ofgem will consider the costs relative to the operational benefit, to ensure that the systems represent value for money. Where costs are incurred it is correct that this may lead to an increase in licencing fees. Costs will be shared by all licenced entities, not just suppliers.
