Reactive Reform – Market Design

The NGESO are now exploring potential solutions to reform the reactive power services which will help to address the challenges we are facing for system voltage control.

Project Brief

To address the challenges we are facing for system voltage control, the NGESO are now using a holistic and interactive approach to exploring potentials solutions that could enable more participants across technologies and connection types to provide reactive power services in the right locations to maintain system voltage security and drive down the overall reactive costs to maximise consumer benefits.
