Ofgem has appeared to knock back the implementation of proposed reforms to network charging under the controversial Targeted Charging Review (TCR).
Fixed charges are to be applied to all final demand network users irrespective of their ability to reduce their impact on the grid through generation or flexibility under Ofgem’s preferred strategy for its Targeted Charging Review (TCR).
Halfway through 2018 and large-scale battery storage in the UK has reached over 450MW installed capacity, with around 250MW being completed this year alone. Solar Media Market Research analyst Lauren Cook looks back at how we got here, and what we can learn from the rapidly growing large-scale pipeline.
A legal challenge to Ofgem’s decision to reduce the payments made to small embedded generators (EGs) when producing energy at peak has been dismissed.
A group of claimants have failed in their bid to delay Ofgem’s implementation of drastic changes to Embedded Benefits payments.
Foresight Solar Fund, one of the UK’s largest owners of utility-scale solar assets, has detailed how changes to the way embedded benefits are calculated will impact its top line.
Ofgem has kicked off its review process to reform residual charging for both demand and generation across transmission and distribution networks with the launch of a significant code review (SCR).
The renewables and decentralised energy generation industries have slammed Ofgem’s decision to cut embedded benefits, warning that it risks damaging next-generation power flexibility.
Ofgem has said it is minded to drastically cut embedded benefit payments to local embedded generators as part of what it says is a bid to protect consumers and prevent market distortion.
