Industry ask government & Ofgem to reform charges: Industry body Scottish Renewables has just pushed for the government & Ofgem to transform the Transmission Network Use of System (TNUoS) charging system.

The body which speaks for Scotland’s renewable energy industry proposes that the current rules governing how the electricity network is bought are ‘critically out of date’ & place an added cost of 10s of millions each year on Scottish renewable energy projects that continue.

A revision of the transmission charges may help the industry support the country’s net zero aims, Scottish Renewables says.

Claire Mack, Chief Executive of Scottish Renewables, stated: “The TNUoS charges which are levied on Scottish projects mean they are now almost 20% more expensive than equivalent projects in the south of England.

“If the UK is to have any hope of meeting net zero carbon emissions by 2050 & delivering on its ambitions for COP26 we must take advantage of every tool we have.

An Ofgem spokesperson said: “As the independent energy regulator, Ofgem is committed to achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions at the lowest cost to consumers while making sure generators pay proportionate costs for using the network.

“In October we asked our stakeholders for their views on reforming transmission charges & that call for evidence closed on Friday 12th November.

“Scottish Renewables was one of a number of organisations that submitted evidence last week. We are now reviewing all the submissions &  will update our stakeholders in due course.”
