Registration now closed. If you own a non domestic electricity generator - Solar PV, Wind Turbine, CHP Unit or another form of generation, then find out how you can become compliant at this webinar.

Your site must be compliant with G59/3-7 by August 31st 2022. Failure to make the necessary changes prior to this date is likely to result in enforcement action being taken. Some of the required changes may necessitate planning and expertise, so we are strongly advising generation owners to act now to check settings, inform us of their current status, then if required, apply through the Accelerated Loss of Mains Change Programme (ALoMCP) to receive funding to support any necessary changes before the end of 2021. Please do not leave this to the last minute, delayed applications may harm your ability to receive funding and to complete the works on time.

SSEN is on hand to support you through the application process. You can undertake the changes and apply for funding yourself, employ a contractor, or SSEN can signpost you to their Recognised Contractor scheme. More information can be found via SSEN's website www.ssen.co.uk/LossOfMains. You can also access a step-by-step guide to support you through the process from www.futureproofyourpower.co.uk

On accepting this invitation, please note that YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS WILL BE VISIBLE TO ALL THOSE THAT JOIN THE CALL.. If you are registering with a personal email address, please consider providing us with an alternative email. If you do not wish for your email to be visible, please do not join this webinar.

Regen and SSEN would like you to join a webinar to discuss the 2021 edition of the Distributed Future Energy Scenarios analysis.

The DFES analysis is a key stage in SSEN's wider network forecasting and investment planning processes for both their Central and Southern England and North of Scotland licence areas and we are keen to gain stakeholder feedback on our modelling and assumptions that feed in to this.

We will be looking to explore, gauge views and discuss he potential growth and location of future energy generation technologies in the Southern and Central Licence Area.

We are also keen to gauge view and local input around the uptake of new or disruptive sources of electricity demand, such as battery storage, electric vehicles, heat pumps and hydrogen electrolysis.

Join SSEN for discussions on our flexibility services from distributed generators required for Constraint Managed Zones

Generators and demand connections will have the opportunity to contribute to delivering a low-carbon, smarter energy system as Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) seeks flexibility providers to support the electricity network on Lewis and Harris on the West Coast of Scotland. Known as Constraint Managed Zones (CMZ), flexibility services from distributed generation or demand side response can opt-in to being paid to provide and reduce power to support SSEN's network to prevent overloading of assets, or during maintenance and faults on the network to reduce the reliance on fossil fuel-based energy generation.

SSEN will be issuing two invitations to tender, as follows:
- Tender One: To enhance our existing standard service contracts by allowing intermittent generation to partake in providing services. Previous tenders in the area did not accommodate intermittent generation.

- Tender Two: For an energy solution to provide stability in the form of frequency response. This will help to reduce the operational needs of our aging stand by diesel generation fleet during islanded conditions when Lewis and Harris are not connected to the main national grid, due to either planned or unplanned power outages.

This session will provide an overview of (CMZ) and the different requested services you may want to offer on Lewis and Harris on the West Coast of Scotland. We will also provide an overview of the procurement process. Additionally, SSEN are developing CMZ locations elsewhere in Scotland and in the south of England, will provide information on those CMZ areas.

This event is intended to disseminate learning from the SSEN & UKPN NIA funded innovation project "Future Control Room".

The University of Strathclyde will present their findings with SSEN chairing the event. There will also be time for Q&A.

The project aims to understand the requirements and architectures of a future distribution control room as well as assess possible innovations and new technologies that could be used to develop an optimal future control room design (incl. a roadmap to achieve them). Through a mixture of industry engagement and academic insight, this project has informed and accelerated the evolution of the DNO control room. The specifications and recommendations provided by the PNDC will influence DNO plans throughout RIIO-ED2 and beyond.

On accepting this invitation, please note that YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS WILL BE VISIBLE TO ALL THOSE THAT JOIN THE CALL..
