National Grid Electricity System Operator

We have awarded funding for one National Grid Electricity System Operator project.

Black Start from Distributed Energy Resources (National Grid Electricity System Operator) - 2018

This project will trial how different types of distributed energy resources (DERs) can provide black start services and local restoration.  The proposed project will build on existing research in GB and internationally, and investigate if DERs are a viable solution to provide Black Start services, and how to coordinate stakeholders to best manage restoration efforts. The project aims to provide a commercial and regulatory framework for how Black Start services from DERs can be purchased and regulated.

You can find further information on the project and related documents in the publications and updates section below.
