ESO welcomes Transmission Network Review

We strongly welcome and support Nick Winser’s review on accelerating electricity transmission network deployment.

We are committed to working with all stakeholders and communities - from Peterhead to Penzance - to ensure the grid Britain needs for the future is delivered.

The Winser review is an independent review by the UK's Electricity Networks Commissioner, Nick Winser, looking at ways to reduce the time it takes to build grid infrastructure and connections.

Today, 4 August, the review and its recommendations were published, including important additional roles the Future System Operator could take on over time.
