This letter sets out our decision to approve DCUSA code modification proposal DCP350, requiring DNOs and IDNOs to create a public standardised register of all sites larger than 1MW with Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) that are connected to or have an agreement to connect to their networks and influence the operation of the GB power system.  DERs includes generation, storage and demand sites (that have a contract to provide Demand Side Response/Management).  The Register would contain specific data fields for each connected site and would be kept up to date by the relevant DNO or IDNO.
