ABSTRACT
This article reports that Redpoint has been appointed by the British Department of Energy and Climate Change (Decc) to model the impact of a range of grid access options as part of the Transmission Access Review. It cites the common objective of the options for reforming grid access, as well as a possible downside of allowing new generators to come online early. A key element of the modelling analysis was quantifying incremental constraint costs. The Connect and Manage Socialised access regime was the option most likely to meet the objectives, Decc says.
