Distribution Generation owner/operator forum

We have set up a forum in partnership with Regen aimed at owners and operators of MW scale renewables connected to a WPD network to provide an opportunity for WPD and Distributed Generation (DG) owners/operators to improve communication on issues including:

  • WPD work to address grid constraints;
  • Improving communication with generators on outages and constraints;
  • Potential approaches for forecasting and mitigating outages.
The next meetings of the forum will take place on:

9th October 2018
