All work commissioned was advisory work from expert advisers. The expenditure is as follows -

DEPDU (Arup)              - spend to date -                                                                             £192,393

Cornwall Energy (electricity market advisers) -spend to date-                         £30,500

Legal advice (Nabarro and then Temple Bright) - spend to date -                   £38,157.

There has been no research commissioned for Licence Lite. The advice that has been commissioned is commercially sensitive, it is not appropriate to publish it on the GLA website.

Prior to Oct 2012 some work was commissioned jointly with LB Haringey, financed by the Department of Energy and Climate Change.
