Understanding how projects connect to and use the grid is a continually moving target. Rules and regulation are big issues with much work in progress and change afoot. Understanding these issues and the implications is both time consuming and complicated and can be short-circuited by talking to us.
We discuss and help implement the changes via our involvement in working groups. We offer you specific advice on what this really means, how things might change in the future, the risk and costs, and the best strategies for you to adopt. We engage with the continual process of regulatory change which has seen the implementation of sweeping changes to the electricity system over the last 10-15 years. This trend is continuing as the UK market goes through change in almost all aspects of the industry.
- Regulatory and commercial expertise in licensing, licence exemptions, regulatory requirements, metering systems, obligations and arrangements.
- Advice on grid connection costs including use of system charges (Transmission Network Use of System - TNUoS, Generator Distribution Use of System - GDUoS), balancing charges (Balancing Services Use of System - BSUoS), transmission loss multipliers, benefits and credits, underwriting and security requirements.
- Expert advice and future assessment of charging arrangements for transmission and distribution connected projects.
- A model to estimate TNUoS charges out to 2050 validated against National Grid ESO's own TNUoS model and takes a wide range of forecast input variables including generation and demand trends, system reinforcements, transmission revenue recovery and regulatory impacts to estimate long term trends reflective of socio-economic change, environmental perspectives, technology improvements and the political arena.
- Provision of consultation briefings and responses to help you be heard and protect your projects.
