Launch of PRASEG report
Renewables and the Grid: access and management
PRASEG convened an inquiry to discuss current issues affecting access to the transmission and distribution network for renewables and other low carbon technologies, and the challenges facing operators when managing the network with an increasingly variable input. The terms of reference and call for evidence were issued on 1 December 2009. Twenty-eight organisations or other experts in the field submitted evidence, and two oral evidence sessions were held: one on 12 January 2010 and the other on 27 January 2010. This work is intended to supplement the current and imminent consultations, including those issued by the Department of Energy and Climate Change, the Energy and Climate Change Select Committee, and Ofgem.
