Contracted capacity register
We said we would update our contracted capacity register on a monthly basis.
“We are pleased that Northern Powergrid acted upon our feedback to update generator contracted capacity information on a monthly basis, in addition to heat maps."
Nicola Percival, Innogy Renewables UK Ltd.
Our customers commended the commitment we made in our 2016/17 ICE work plan to update our generation and demand heat maps on a more frequent basis, but during the year they asked us to make updates to our contracted capacity register in a similar timescale.
We added a new commitment to our work plan and said we would to start work on this in January 2017. The contracted capacity register is a tool that provides useful information for developers on the number and status of other projects in an area. It provides information on connections that have been quoted but not accepted and quotations that have been accepted but not yet constructed. It is one of a number of tools we have made available to our customers to help them understand what potential spare capacity is available on our network. All of the information within the capacity register remains anonymous to protect the privacy of our customers.
We commenced work on this in January 2017 as we had forecast and since the start of the new regulatory year have been updating the information on a monthly basis.
