National Grid ESO considers DSO to be a fundamental part of whole electricity system development. We are committed to working with Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) and other parties to facilitate the transition to DSO. Here we provide our response to Ofgem’s recent position paper on DSO.
We have prepared this paper to promote discussion on how decentralised energy resources can efficiently provide services to both NGESO and DSOs in a coordinated manner. To date, we have used the paper to support conversations with DNO’s, Ofgem and BEIS.
We’re interested to hear your views – please use the link below to join the conversation.
The traditional distinctions between transmission and distribution networks and processes are blurring. We need a whole system approach with our stakeholders to deliver services efficiently and effectively. As a stand-alone ESO we need to work with other stakeholders to facilitate whole system outcomes.
This paper discusses how the ESO role is changing to facilitate whole system outcomes and how this links to both the ESO roles and the Open Networks Project.
This paper looks at a world where the ESO works closely with DSOs to ensure routes to local, regional and national markets are optimised, in order to create value for the end consumer. We believe that this world provides a credible whole electricity system vision - but recognise that there are other potential pathways that need to be considered.
Here, we consider the key topics that we believe we need to focus on to deliver this future landscape. We are interested in your views -please email [email protected]
National Grid ESO is undertaking a wide range of activities to inform the development of Whole Electricity System. We achieve this through working with others and taking a ‘design by doing’ approach. This paper further describes our approach and what successful outcomes will look like for us. Additionally, recognising the wide range of initiatives the ESO is involved in, we have developed this document to provide a reference at this point in time for all relevant transformational activities.
