Operational Transparency Forum

Every Wednesday, we hold an open technical industry forum to discuss recent operational actions we have taken in the Electricity National Control Centre (ENCC) and answer any questions.

We aim to be transparent around our ENCC operation and actions to give industry partners recent and relevant insight that might aid their own operations.

Our weekly Operational Transparency Forum (OTF) is where experts from the ESO review the previous week’s activities, provide an update on recent events and hold a live question and answer session focusing on ENCC operations and activities.
