New forecast of network charges and large user exemptions
National Grid publishes new forecast of network charges, Energy Intensive Exemptions coming into force
The National Grid dominated last week’s energy news, publishing their quarterly forecast of charges that pay for the systems infrastructure. These charges are otherwise known as Transmission Network Use of System charges (TNUoS). Triad charges, Contracts for Difference and Renewables Obligation schemes were some of the key points discussed. In the wholesale market prices generally increased, but Brent crude oil and coal grabbed the headlines, as both reached their highest prices since July 2015!
