In this letter, we provide an update on the regulation of transmission connecting non-GB generation to the GB transmission system (“non-GB connections”).
This follows our November 2013 consultation where we suggested key principles for the regulation of transmission assets and presented potential regulatory options for non-GB connections. In this update, we summarise the responses to the consultation and explain why our work on non-GB connections is now part of the Integrated Transmission Planning and Regulation (ITPR) project and timelines.
The connection of generation projects outside GB jurisdiction directly to the GB electricity transmission system is unprecedented. Our role is to establish how the GB elements of non-GB connections should be regulated.
