Network Headroom Report

Our Network Headroom Report is a consultation document which shows the demand and capacity available on our electricity network

Our Network Headroom Report is an example of a technical document which provides details on the capacity available on our network. 
We created our first example of a Network Headroom Report in August 2021. It is designed as a consultation document to get feedback from stakeholders. With your input we can understand the best way to report on the amount of capacity available on our network.


Have your say 

From 1 May 2022, all UK Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) will be required to publish a Network Headroom Report as part of a wider Network Development Plan. We’ve produced this medium-term report early to get your feedback on how we can best publish our data and network analysis in the future. We’ll take forward your opinions when we publish our new report next year.
