ENA DNO DER Technical Forum
Operating as a sub group to the ENA DER DNO Steering Group, ENA facilitates an industry technical forum where distributed energy resource (DER) connection issues are discussed and addressed and includes the sharing of best practice, a better understanding of technical constraints and the development of agreed solutions. The forum will only deal with technical related issues that are not already dealt with by other industry standing working groups, committees or Code Panels. Membership includes all DNOs, IDNOs, National Grid, representatives from DER Trade Associations and the DER community.
Should you have a technical issue with a DER connection or implementation that you believe apears to be inconsistant across all DNOs then please email Vincent Hay, Technical Secretary at [email protected], or Mark Dunk, Head of Engineering at [email protected], with details of the issue and it will be formally tabled and discussed at the next meeting of the Forum.
DER Stakeholders Issues Log
The DER Technical Forum secretary maintains a stakeholder issues log with key issues that require discussion and resolution. A copy of the log may be downloaded. The log also includes previous issues raised where resolution has been confirmed along with items with resolutions outstanding.
