Description

Centre for Energy Policy Energy Conversations: ‘Keeping the lights on’: what is it worth?

Registration from 5:30pm in Cathedral Wing, 4th floor foyer.

Event will run 6:00pm-7:30pm, and will be followed by a drinks reception, to which you are cordially invited.

Conversationalists include: Craig McTaggart, Non-Load Investment Manager at SP Energy Networks; Jamie Stewart, Energy Policy Team Manager at Citizens Advice Scotland; Keith Bell, SP Chair in Smartgrids; and Karen Turner, Director of Centre for Energy Policy, University of Strathclyde.


With the upcoming Price Control for GB electricity transmission, the Government, Ofgem and the energy companies are increasingly focused on understanding – and defining – what the value is of our electricity transmission network. What role does the transmission network play, how vital is it and how much do we value it?

Join us at this Energy Conversation to explore what the transmission network does for us.

We will consider:

  • What role does the transmission network play in keeping the lights on?

  • How critical is the existing network and its existing assets relative to other parts of the electricity system?What sort of services does the transmission network enable?

  • How do we currently value those services?

  • What value should we put on those services and hence the assets that underpin them?

  • Do we value them enough?What are the key challenges for the exiting transmission network?
