SP Energy Networks development plan

Posted: 4th May 2022

SP Energy Networks have launched a new data publication (opens in a new window) to provide transparency on our network intervention plans and the capacity they release. This new annual publication is called our Network Development Plan (NDP) – you can have your say on it by completing our survey.

Sharing data is key to the efficiency of the energy system as we decarbonise to Net Zero. It enables customers and stakeholders to assess market opportunities and network companies to promote efficient whole system planning and operation.

Our draft Network Development Plan (NDP) aims to provide greater transparency on our network intervention plans and forecast capacity headroom. Our NDP includes forecasts of how much demand and generation headroom we anticipate across our distribution networks, with details of interventions including the widescale use of flexibility and innovation.

The document will be finalised in early May, following stakeholder feedback, and updated annually.

Given that the purpose of NDPs is to share information with stakeholders, it’s important that these documents meet our stakeholders’ needs.

To make sure you can have your say, we’ve launched a survey which you can complete below. The survey will be open until 16 April 2022.

We look forward to hearing your views.
