Energy Networks Association (ENA) is urging stakeholders to respond to their call for evidence to help unlock early investment in the grid to support a green economic recovery.
Working alongside Ofgem, ENA’s members have drawn up plans to unlock early investment in the grid to support the technologies of tomorrow to be delivered quickly, driving green jobs and green growth across Great Britain.
There are tens of millions of pounds available for investment in each distribution network licence area, totalling £300m across Great Britain.
Projects which are not able to meet the timeline in this call for evidence have the opportunity to submit evidence to energy network operators for inclusion in the RIIO-ED2 business plans, the networks investment period 2023-2028.
The six-week call for evidence closes on 19 March. It is open to everyone and no technology is excluded. If a project is ready to be delivered and supports the net zero transition, then ENA is encouraging it to take part.
Randolph Brazier, director of innovation and electricity systems at Energy Networks Association which represents the UK and Ireland’s energy networks businesses said, “Right across the country, network companies need your help to unlock the benefits of a green economic recovery. There are only two weeks to go in our call for evidence. If your project is ready to be delivered, could be unlocked by network investment and supports the Net Zero transition then send in your proposals and take part.”
