ESO at heart of new future system operator

We welcome today’s announcement, by BEIS and Ofgem, to create a future system operator that builds on the track record and skills of the ESO with enhanced roles and responsibilities to unlock additional value for consumers and drive towards to net zero.

We are pleased to have signed a multi-party statement with BEIS, Ofgem and National Grid Plc. This statement shows our collective commitment to progressing the establishment of the Future System Operator. 

Fintan Slye, Executive Director, Electricity System Operator, said:

We warmly welcome today’s announcement and together with Government, the regulator, National Grid plc, and industry we will help deliver a reliable and clean transition for all. 

The ESO will continue working closely with all parties involved in the coming weeks and months to enable a smooth and successful transition.
