Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks Distribution is consulting stakeholders to gain insight in developing our new business plan.

Details:
Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) Distribution is currently consulting with stakeholders to gather insight and feedback to support the development of our new business plan for the next electricity distribution price control period, RIIO-ED2. As part of our plan, Shetland has been identified as a location requiring bespoke regional planning and investment to ensure a safe, secure and reliable supply of electricity to homes, businesses and industries on the islands and facilitate the transition to net zero. As the last major islanded energy network in the UK, a whole system network solution has been agreed to secure Shetland's future electricity supply needs and realise its large onshore renewable potential.
The regulator, Ofgem, has approved the development of an electricity transmission link to Shetland, alongside SSEN Distribution's recommendation to supply the Shetland islands through a connection to this new transmission infrastructure. The connection to supply the islands is expected to be available from late 2024 and will be the first time Shetland is connected to the GB electricity system. As the electricity distribution network operator responsible for powering homes and businesses across the islands, we need to take steps now to secure a reliable, innovative and cost-effective backup solution to ensure that security of supply to Shetland is maintained when supply from the transmission link is not available due to maintenance works or a fault. While at a provisional stage, pending feedback from Ofgem, the principles and pproach for the standby arrangements are being considered and we'd like to invite you to provide your insight, feedback and directly inform our business plan to ensure we meet Shetland's future energy needs from 2023 onwards.

We believe that three main objectives that will drive the need for innovation as we build the network of the future: value for money for customers, meeting the needs of our stakeholders and enabling Great Britains low carbon transition. To achieve this we need to drive further innovation and also ensure we realise the full value of existing innovative work delivered across the industry.

As part of the development of our RIIO-ED2 business plan submission to Ofgem, we are seeking to co-create with stakeholders across the innovation community to shape our innovation strategy and approach to innovation over the period from 2023 to 2028.

We are seeking stakeholder insights on mechanisms which could be adopted and formalised as part of our innovation strategy, to ensure that we continue to innovate across all aspects of the meet our objectives and deliver value for customers. Potential mechanisms should include:

1 Enablement for SMEs, academics and individuals to put forward innovative ideas and concepts that are aligned to the needs of our business.
2 Horizon scanning to identify assess new technologies, commercial arrangements and best practices.
3 Stimulation of innovation throughout the community and across the wider supply chain.

The purpose of the workshop is to enable the innovation community to be part of our RIIO-ED2 innovation strategy development process through taking into account your ideas on how to shape the 2023-28 strategy and ultimately put these into practice in our business.

Following the event, we would welcome any views and feedback you would like to also be considered.
