Integrated Transmission Planning and Regulation

The Integrated Transmission Planning and Regulation (ITPR) project is a review of the current arrangements for system planning and delivery.

The project’s aim is to determine whether the system planning and delivery arrangements are appropriate to achieving a long-term efficient integrated transmission  network - onshore, offshore and cross-border. 

The ITPR project is being carried out within the context of the specific challenges and drivers  identified in our March Open Letter - provided in the document library below. In particular, the ITPR project  considers two related aspects of system planning and development:

  1. the overall institutional framework under which the National Electricity Transmission System Operator and transmission infrastructure investors operate
  2. the interfaces between the onshore, offshore and interconnection investment regimes.
