In the Smart System and Flexibility Plan we committed to making sure that network operators cannot directly operate storage. We consulted on our proposals for giving effect to this commitment in September 2017. After reviewing the responses to the consultation, we proceeded with a statutory consultation on the changes to the electricity distribution licence condition to fully implement our proposals. We have now published our decision on the proposed licence modifications to the electricity distribution licence.
