  • THE BIG PICTURE: National grid Future Energy Scenarios

  1. Gone green
  2. No Progression
  3. Slow Progression
  4. Consumer Power

    • What is considered:
      • Gas demand
      • Electricity demand

  • System operability framework: what does the system need?
  • The energy storage picture: what is the overall strategy for energy storage?
  • THE SPECIFICS:
    • Is National Grid going to align tender timelines to avoid interface risk?
    • Is it going to allow bid structure flexibility?
    • What is the progress on accepting unbundled offers?
    • Accessing new revenue streams
      • Network investment deferral
      • Islanding network
      • Phase rebalancing
      • Harmonics mitigation
      • Voltage regulation
      • Reactive power
      • Localized grid balancing
