Seminar: The role of networks in the transition to net-zero Programme


Registration & Networking


What should a post-charging reform regime look like?

The next decade will require regulation to move at pace to accommodate the level of renewable deployment needed to meet net-zero. There are signs that changes to the charging regime, TNUoS in particular, are coming.

In this session leading grid experts will share their views on how this could play out and its implications for the renewable energy industry.

In this session you’ll learn:

  • The challenges that Scottish renewable projects face due to high transmission charges, and how this is likely to change in the future
  • The regulatory changes taking place in TNUoS, DUoS, BSUoS, the interaction between them and the implications for the renewables industry
  • What TNUoS reform means for your business and the wider renewable energy sector in Scotland

Adam Morrison, Project Director for Moray West Offshore Wind Farm, Ocean Winds
Harriet Harmon, Head of Transmission Charging Policy, Energy Systems Management and Security, Ofgem

The 2030 Grid Vision for Scotland

The Scottish Government and UK Government have a legal obligation to reach net-zero by 2045 and 2050 respectively. Energy will be a huge part of this but Ofgem, the energy regulator, does not have net-zero in its remit.

On the other hand, Government has proposed a Future System Operator (FSO) that will provide the independent advice needed for the system to evolve but the timeframe for this is uncertain.

The grid landscape is changing, and this has major implications for renewable energy projects.

In this session you’ll learn:

  • What the Grid vision looks like with an additional 8 to 12GW of onshore wind and up to 10GW of additional offshore wind through ScotWind by 2030?
  • How the Future System Operator could support the energy transition and the further deployment of renewable energy technologies
  • The interaction between the FSO and Ofgem and what changes we would expect from these two bodies working together
