In April 2022 we published a consultation paper: “Early Opportunities - Consultation on our Minded-to Decision on Anticipatory Investment and Implementation of Policy Changes”. This paper is our decision on changes to our policy on anticipatory investment and how we plan to implement those changes in the Early Opportunities workstream. We are also publishing an assessment we have carried out on the likely impact of the changes we are proposing.
Following this decision, we will continue to work through the application of the charging methodology for anticipatory investment and invite NG ESO to raise code modifications to implement our policy decisions. We will work with NG ESO on how best to achieve the policy decisions set out in this document and the aims of the Early Opportunities workstream.
