Keeping the lights on - with Faye Relton and Neil Morgans

Making sure the entirety of Great Britain has enough energy all the time is a mammoth task, and doing this whilst simultaneously transitioning to a new suite of services in order to reach a zero-carbon electricity system is even more of a challenge!

Watch the podcast.

In this bumper episode of Modo: The Podcast, Quentin chats to Faye Relton (Ancillary Services Development Manager) and Neil Morgans (Balancing Services Optimisation Manager) from National Grid ESO. The conversation covers the following topics plus much much more:

  • An overview of frequency response in Great Britain, the history and a peek into the future.
  • All about NGESO’s new suite of services - Dynamic Containment, Dynamic Moderation, Dynamic Regulation and how they are being used.
  • Frequency standardisation and how it supports the system.
  • Changes to the Auction. Defining the problems and highlighting the benefits.
  • A look at the reasoning behind the implementation of price caps.
  • and of course how the National Grid ESO plays an integral part in all of this.
