Cap and Floor Third Application Window and MPI Pilot Regulatory Framework- Guidance on our Needs Case Assessment Framework



This document follows on from the Application Guidance for the Third Cap and Floor Window for Electricity Interconnectors and the Multi-Purpose Interconnectors Pilot Regulatory Framework document, and explains the framework that will be used to assess the needs case for proposed projects across both schemes. We also provide guidance for applicants who plan to submit their own cost-benefit modelling study as part of their application. Finally, we have published a supporting report by Ove Arup alongside our document.
