Whole System energy solutions for the Scottish Islands

Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) Distribution recently started its new price control period called RIIO-ED2, which will run from 2023 to 2028.

As part of the final agreement, which was reached with Ofgem, we are able to apply for additional funding to deliver whole system solutions for net zero and to support the security of supply in the Scottish Islands.

In building our case for this submission, we’ve been working with technical specialists, systems analysists and engaging closely with customers and stakeholders from the Islands to understand future requirements and additional aims.

We recognise that thorough stakeholder engagement is a critical part of our preparation for network interventions. As such, we have held a series of webinars and bilaterals to seek views from customers and stakeholders to help shape our plans.

We have now submitted our final proposal to Ofgem.
