Connections Portal

As part of our RIIO-2 ambition, the Connections Portal is being designed to transform the Connections Journey and account management for all Customers.

The Portal will provide a single point of contact for all ESO connections customers looking to either connect to, or, make use of the transmission system. The initial release will look at the digitisation of the application process and include the following high-level functionality:

  • Apply for connections and other agreements online

  • Monitor live applications and track progress

  • Access to signed contract documents

  • View of key milestones / milestone management

  • Communicate directly with your connections contract manager

The Connections Portal will be available to access from this page in July 2022.

Please keep checking back to this page as we will be adding relevant communications and material over the coming months as and when appropriate, including details on how to register for the portal ahead of go-live.

Stakeholder Engagement

We are running stakeholder workshops to help shape the Connections Portal both in the run up to the July Minimum Viable Product (MVP) release as well for future development in later releases.

These workshops provide an early look at development and offer testing opportunities to interested parties. Organisations interested in participating in the workshops can register their interest via the button below.

There will be numerous releases of the Connections Portal over the coming months and years and the aspiration is to continually build and add functionality that covers the end to end connections process.
