Offshore Transmission Network Review: Consultation on Enduring Regime and Multi-Purpose Interconnectors

Closed 23 Nov 2021

Opened 28 Sep 2021


The Offshore Transmission Network Review aims to deliver improvements in the way that offshore generation is connected to the onshore transmission network and facilitate a more supportive approach for multi-purpose interconnectors (that combine market-to-market interconnectors with offshore transmission).  We are seeking stakeholder views to help develop an approach to the way that new projects coming forward through future seabed leasing rounds will be connected.  At this stage we are asking for views on the high-level approach and will use the responses to help develop more detailed proposals, on which we might consult at a later stage.  This two-stage approach is intended to ensure that we are able to implement the changes as early as possible.
