National Grid ESO has signed an agreement with energy tech firm Reactive Technologies for measuring system inertia in real-time.
Machine learning and data science has improved National Grid ESO’s solar forecasting accuracy by 33% in a collaboration with the Alan Turing Institute.
Flexibility providers called on by National Grid ESO jumped into action last week in response to grid frequency falling to 49.59Hz.
National Grid ESO’s Future Energy Scenarios (FES) 2019 – released last week – outlined four potential scenarios for the next 30 years of the energy system. And for the first time, the Electricity System Operator (ESO) used sensitivity modelling to create a net zero scenario.
Net zero will require ‘immediate’ action across all policy areas and technologies, according to National Grid ESO’s latest forecasts.
The industry reacts to plans announced by The Labour Party to re-nationalise the UK’s energy networks after a document detailing the plans was leaked.
