Whole System Register

This Whole System Register provides 31 examples of coordination activities with other network stakeholders during 2021/22, to deliver an efficient and effective energy system. It includes coordination with other electricity network licensees, and more generally solutions arising from working and coordinating collaboratively across the whole value chain (network companies, local authorities, consumers and consumer groups, retailers, technology firms, etc) to deliver wider societal benefits, as well as meeting core objectives of delivering low cost, secure electricity to our customers. Whole systems thinking in this widest sense is fundamental to facilitating the achievement of Net Zero at the lowest whole system cost for society and is a key part of our approach to preparing for the next regulatory period RIIO-ED2 as set out in our business plan, https://ed2.ukpowernetworks.co.uk/.

The register demonstrates compliance with the Whole Electricity System Licence Condition 7A for Electricity Distributors to clearly and transparently demonstrate the process we have undertaken to coordinate and cooperate with other electricity network licensees, and to consider proposals from systems users which seek to advance the efficient and economical operation of our network. This will allow other electricity network licensees and users to understand what opportunities have been identified and learn from them, advancing the industry’s understanding of the possibilities across a broad range of scenarios.

Information within the Coordination Register comprises:

  • Details of all relevant coordination and cooperation activities completed with other electricity network licensees during the period April 21 to March 22, to develop whole electricity systems outcomes, including data sharing.
  • Details of any actions or processes that have been implemented (or are being implemented) because of coordination and cooperation activities completed with other electricity network licensees.
  • Details of all proposals received during a relevant period from system users to advance the efficient and economical operation of Electricity Distributors’ and/or transmission owners’ networks.
  • Details of any system user proposals that have been implemented (or are being implemented). As well as a concise and clear summary of proposals not deemed to be apt for implementation, including the reason(s) for that decision.
