Decision on the Regulatory treatment of CLASS as a balancing service in RIIO-ED2 network price control


We consulted in March 2022 and February 2020 on the regulatory treatment of Customer Load Active System Services (CLASS). We have carefully considered the views and evidence provided by stakeholders.

This document sets out our decision, rationale and consideration of stakeholder responses. We have decided to implement our minded-to position to continue to allow DNOs to provide CLASS to the ESO as a balancing service. In RIIO-ED2, these services will once more be remunerated through DRS8. This represents a continuation of the current regulatory treatment in RIIO-ED1.
