S1045 - Future arrangements for the electricity system operator: its role and structure

Description

Future arrangements for the electricity system operator: its role and structure: IET comments to OFGEM


Abstract We set out the our view of the future role of systems operators as part of a whole systems things approach. We see this consultation as being the third of a series that are closely related in many ways; the other two being the BEIS/Ofgem “Call for evidence; a smart, flexible energy system” (CfE) and Ofgem’s consultation on industry code governance. We broadly support the suggestions put forward in the call for evidence but stress the importance of the system operator role being imagined as part of the larger joined up approach to the whole energy system.
