This is the 2016/2017 Environment and Innovation report for SP Energy Networks activity in the SP Distribution and SP Manweb licence areas. The purpose of the report is to communicate the performance against the ED1 Business Plan published in 2015, and is an annual requirement until the end of the ED1 period in 2023.
Our Distribution Network Operator Vision
As the UK builds towards a low carbon future, the nature of the electricity grid is changing.
Consumers no longer rely solely on centralised energy generation to meet their electricity demands. There are increasing volumes of smaller distributed generation and Low Carbon technologies such as electric vehicles being connected to the network. As network operators we need to adapt to meet these challenges whilst maintaining low cost, reliable energy distribution for our customers. It is our view that the right way to adapt is to extend the current role of the Distribution Network Operator (DNO), to that of a Distribution System Operator (DSO).
We believe that there is a need to accelerate industry debate on the precise roles and responsibilities of a future DSO. In March we instigated an SP Energy Networks DSO Steering group. The first outcome of this group is a consultation on Our DSO Vision, which outlines our views on the expanded roles and responsibilities of SPEN as a DSO. As one of our stakeholders we welcome your views on this document.
