Energy Secretary Edward Davey today announced the appointment of two new Non-Executive Directors to the Gas and Electricity Markets Authority (GEMA), which oversees the work of Ofgem, the independent energy regulator.
Keith Lough and Professor Paul Grout will both take up the posts today, following an open competition.
Edward Davey said:
"Ofgem has a crucial role to play in ensuring consumers get a fair deal, helping to maintain secure supplies and contributing to the low carbon agenda. It is essential that it has the right kind of leadership at board level.
"The new non-executive appointees bring a wide range of experience and skills to GEMA, and will positively help tackle the challenges faced by energy consumers going forward."
GEMA, chaired by Lord Mogg KCMG, governs the direction and policies of the gas and electricity regulator Ofgem.
