Winter Outlook Report
Welcome to our 2013/14 Winter Outlook Report.
This annual publication provides a forecast of the anticipated supply/demand for both gas and electricity over the coming winter. It is based on detailed market analysis and the responses received through the winter consultation process.
We can’t predict exactly what supply and demand will be this winter, or factor in unexpected events, but we are in a good position to provide an overview of what to expect.
This press kit is designed to help you understand how the gas and electricity market works, our role within it and what our data predicts this winter will bring in terms of supply and demand.
