Transmission credits could attract storage to areas with surplus power

Assets such as batteries and electrolysers that can soak up excess power should receive transmission credits to incentivise them to locate in areas of the country with surplus renewable output. An SSE commissioned report points out that this would mirror the arrangements for generators which already receive credits for locating in areas where electricity demand outstrips supply. This is one of a number of recommended options for reforming Transmission Network Use of System (TNUoS) charges and constraint management to help drive the decarbonisation of the electricity system.
