Funding of transmission investment for renewable generation

Ofgem draft guidance note (7 pages, 1M PDF) accompanying proposed transmission licence modifications for National Grid (23 pages, 2M PDF), SP Transmission (29 pages, 2.8M PDF) and Scottish Hydro-Electric (23 pages, 2M PDF) intended to provide a funding mechanism for network enhancement projects required to provide transmission capacity for new renewable generation plants. This proposal is limited to the four investment projects (Beauly-Denny, Scotland-England interconnector, Sloy and South West Scotland) identified in Ofgem's December 2004 final proposals (64 pages) as "clearly justified in terms of savings in constraint and other costs". Objections by Friday 25 November 2005.
