DG Connections Guides
We worked with the ENA to update its DG connections guides and to incorporate new technologies like storage and export limiting devices.
In line with feedback we received from our generation customers, we agreed to work collaboratively with the Energy Networks Association (ENA) and other network operators to update its Distribution Generation Connections Guides and include technologies like storage and export limiting devices. Collaborating with the ENA and the wider industry on this ensured we could provide our customers with the most up-to-date information and incorporate some of the new and emerging technologies our customers are looking to connect into the guides.
In total, there are six separate Distribution Generation Connections Guides now available - each of which provides a valuable source of information for generation customers.
Recognising that the guides are long and detailed, the ENA has also provided a quick-reference summary guide for each of the guides, providing some of the most useful information in a condensed and easy to understand format.
The target outcome for this action was the completion of a revised set of guides and the action was completed to forecast. We played an active role in the development of these new guides and provided expert input throughout to ensure they remain a useful resource and provide clarity for generation customers at each stage of the connections process.
The full set of revised Distributed Generation Connections Guides are available on the ENA website at www.energynetworks.org/electricity/engineering/distributed-generation/dg-connection-guides.htmlView timeline
