We want to work closely with industry stakeholders so we can deliver the most cost effective solutions to managing network congestion. As well as finding innovative solutions to the challenges posed by achieving a greener future.

We need service providers’ help to improve our processes so we can procure innovative services at the right price.

Our high-level approach to the NOA Constraint Management Pathfinder

Step 1
On 13 May 2020 we held a stakeholder engagement webinar to discuss how we can set out our requirements and recommendations so they’re easy to understand. Webinar slides are available here along with FAQs (updated 5 June), which will be updated from time to time.

Step 2
In December 2019 we launched an RFI on constraint management.

Step 3
In September 2020, we announced our decision to tender for a constraint management service.

Step 4
Following our announcement on the decision to tender at the end of Q2 2020 we are publishing the information about the post fault generation turn down / demand turn up service below. We have included an overview of the service, requirements and a timeline to provide more information on the service.

Step 5
Design and run and tender in FY 2021/22.
