Julian Leslie, head of Networks at National Grid explains the utility’s new, innovative and world’s first of its kind approach to managing the stability of the electricity system.

National Grid has agreed on contracts with five parties, worth £328 million over a six-year period.

The new approach will save consumers up to £128 million over the six-year period, reducing the costs currently associated with managing system balancing and stability, with the reduced carbon emissions a significant step towards the ESO’s ambition of being able to operate the GB electricity system carbon-free by 2025.
