Black Start

Black Start is the procedure we use to restore power in the event of a total or partial shutdown of the national electricity transmission system.

04.02.20 Please note we have published our Black Start Strategy and Procurement Methodology for consultation until 4th March 2020. Please review the Methodologies content below.

It is possible to provide other balancing services, as long as doing so does not interfere with your ability to deliver black start.

We will consider the provision of a black start service from any provider that can meet the technical requirements of the service.

If you are interested in providing this service to us, please contact us.
