The second consultation on the Electricity Network Innovation Strategy is scheduled to open on the 17th November 2017. As part of this phase of consultation, the ENA and its members are hosting two free stakeholder workshops to facilitate more open and in-depth conversation on the draft strategy.

The ENA and its members acknowledge that in order to develop a successful and well-informed Strategy, it is essential the wider viewpoint of the industry is incorporated. Your feedback and input is very important and we encourage you to participate in this opportunity to help shape the Electricity Network Innovation Strategy.

The first workshop will take place in Glasgow on Tuesday 21st November and a second workshop will be held in London on Thursday 23rd November. Places are limited so please register your interest as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

There will be further opportunities for stakeholder engagement at ENA's LCNI Conference in Telford from the 5-7th December 2017.

Background

On 30th June 2017, Ofgem issued a Direction notice to modify the standard conditions of the electricity transmission and distribution licensees. These modifications require the affected licensees to consult with stakeholders and work together to develop and publish an Electricity Network Innovation Strategy by 31st March 2018. The ENA will be coordinating the development of the Electricity Network Innovation Strategy.

A plan for delivering the Electricity Network Innovation Strategy was published on the ENA website on the 31st August 2017. As part of the delivery plan, the ENA ran a short consultation from 22nd September until 6th October to gather stakeholder views on challenges and uncertainties facing electricity transmission and distribution licensees. The feedback from this is being considered and a summary of this consultation will be published on the ENA website.

The delivery of an Electricity Network Innovation Strategy is a critical part of the ENA’s innovation work programme, as it makes the ongoing collaborative work within the ENA and its Members more visible. The Electricity Network Innovation Strategy will ensure that all the relevant network licensees work together in relation to innovation, which will result in coordinated action on priority areas such as reducing cost to the customer, making our service more reliable and supporting the low carbon economy. It will also have implications for the Distribution System Operator (DSO) Transition which is the subject of the Open Networks project, also being led by the ENA on behalf of the GB network operators.
