Further Trials to Address Gaps in DSO Functionality

The purpose of this document is to provide an update on the status of the Open Networks Project - Workstream 3 Product 7 - Further Trials to Address Gaps in DSO Functionality:

  • Sharing the Distribution System Operator (DSO) innovation opportunities identified in 2018 by stakeholders through the Future Worlds Consultation and the Least Regrets Analysis Workshops; and
  • Highlight the approach to mapping Innovation Pathways for development in 2019.

Least Regrets Analysis

The Least Regrets analysis was an assessment of the five future worlds, which identified areas of common functionality between the worlds. These slides provide a summary of the findings as well as potential next steps. To view the Least Regrets update document, please click here.

Future Worlds Consultation

The Future Worlds consultation also encapsulates aspects of products 1 & 2 (SGAM modelling), product 3 (Market agnostic DSO elements), product 4 (Assessment of Future Worlds) and product 6 (Key enablers for Future Worlds). For more information including a full list of responses, please visit our Future Worlds consultation page.

DSO Functional & System Requirements (updated)

The DSO Functional & System Requirements document has been updated to reflect wider stakeholder feedback from the SGAM stakeholder workshops and the Advisory Group sessions. Three of the functions and their related activities have been updated based on this feedback. A summary of these changes is outlined in the slides presented to the Advisory Group on 12th April (slide 62-70).

 DSO Definition (updated)

The DSO Definition document has been updated to reflect the changes in the functions and associated activities.
