Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) own and operate the Distribution Network at a local level: the towers and cables that bring electricity from our national transmission network to homes and businesses up and down the UK.
As more generation and intermittent renewable energy connects to the Distribution Network, the DNOs have been facing an increasingly tough challenge in balancing their own local networks.
Demand Response activities are now being used by DNO’s to help balance the Distribution Network and an alternative arrangement to avoid the cost of network reinforcement. This in turn delivers local grid balancing opportunities for UK businesses.
When accessing DNO programmes, site location is most important as some programmes focus on very small geographic areas. Please contact the team for a full list of programmes and locations.
