Ofgem has officially replied to an article in the Guardian that accused the energy watchdog of stalling the electric vehicle (EV) rollout, saying that is does “not fully reflect Ofgem’s position.”
Ofgem will allow £64 million of additional funding requests from distribution network operators (DNOs) for rail electrification, street works and site security.
Scottish Power Energy Networks (SPEN) is to work with Piclo and Fife Council to develop a local energy market for flexibility.
Ofgem is to consider Scottish Power’s proposal to create demand side response (DSR) technology classes intended to apply new de-rating factors to energy storage used as part of DSR bids into the Capacity Market in 2019.
Scottish Power has come under scrutiny from the demand side response (DSR) sector after proposing to Ofgem that de-rating factors applied to large scale battery storage should be extended to those used to provide DSR in the Capacity Market.
Scottish Power has submitted a proposal to extend recently introduced battery de-rating factors in the Capacity Market to storage included in demand side response bids in what has been described as the latest attack on the battery market.
