In February 2018, we received six submissions for tranche two of the Lossess Discretionary Reward (LDR) – one from each DNO group. The LDR aims to encourage DNOs to undertake additional actions to better understand and manage electricity losses on their networks. Tranche two is focused on the progress made by the DNOs since tranche one, looking at the specific actions they have taken to improve their understanding of losses.

The LDR is worth up to £32 million across all DNOs, spread over three tranches during RIIO-ED1. In tranche one, we awarded £3.8 million in total across the six DNO groups; tranche two is worth up to £10 million.

This decision document sets out the reasons for our decision on each submission.
