FlexTech, Hybrid Working Group - Multiple Legal Entities Response to Consultation
Dear Customer and Stakeholder,
As part of the Hybrid Working Group under the FlexTech initiative, EirGrid and ESB Networks have today published the response to consultation on potential contractual options for Multiple Legal Entities sharing a single connection point.
Hybrids present an opportunity for both System Operators (SO) and industry to maximise the use of existing network assets and increase capacity factors, with the potential to improve security of supply. While it is currently possible to obtain a Connection Agreement for a Hybrid site or unit and connect to the network, the SOs under the Hybrid working group are investigating the issue of one customer, one connection point in relation to Multiple Legal Entities behind one connection point. If this can be implemented in a manner that works for the SOs and for industry, this may help to maximise the use of transmission and distribution infrastructure and assist in delivering our 2030 targets.
The documents outlines the key areas of feedback received from stakeholders and the SOs next steps. To view ESB Networks’ response to this consultation click here.
