ENA launches Net Zero plan for 2021
The Energy Networks Association (ENA) has launched a 2021 Work Plan and consultation, which gives stakeholders from industry and beyond an opportunity to shape the direction and priorities of the ENA’s Open Networks Project in 2021. The public consultation on the scope of work closes on 1 March 2021.
Now beginning its fifth year, the Open Networks Project has helped Britain to become a superpower of renewable energy. By implementing and standardising processes and practices where possible, the UKs energy networks are powering the ultimate goal of net zero carbon emissions. This year Open Networks will build on the momentum gained to deliver further improvements.
The project will expand its focus on its industry leading work on Flexibility Services, continue to deliver Distribution System Operation functionality and transparently report progress through the DSO Implementation Plan, improve the customer connections process, and deliver Whole Energy Systems Efficiencies.
David Smith, Chief Executive at Energy Networks Association which represents the UK and Ireland’s energy networks businesses said: “2021 will be a year of action and delivery ahead of COP26 in Glasgow, and the Open Networks Project looks forward to collaborating with the whole industry, from BEIS and Ofgem to community groups all over the country, to deliver the vital changes to deliver net zero emissions.”
