Events

The DCRP may occasionally mandate stakeholder events for pieces of work of specific interest which require added stakeholder engagement. A list of events of the past and present events is provided below.

Engineering Recommendation (EREC) G5 Issue 5 DCRP Public Consultation Dissemination Event in London 1 April 2019 and Glasgow 10 April 2019

The DCRP mandated the EREC G5/5 Working Group to host two stakeholder dissemination events to explain the changes made to the ER G5/4-1 document to Users in advance of the public consultation closure on Friday 19 April 2019. The two dissemination events will be hosted in London on Monday 1 April 2019 and Glasgow on Wednesday 10 April 2019. Members of the EREC G5/5 Working Group will be in attendance to present to stakeholders.

The dissemination events will allow DCode stakeholders to ask questions about the revised EREC G5/5 document to assist in understanding the impact of the changes being proposed, and to provide the opportunity to clarify any of the consultation questions being asked.

To register for either two of the events, please see the following links:

Stakeholder event in London 1st April 10:00-16:00

ENA Requirements for Generators EU Network Code Briefing Sessions in London 14 May 2018 and Glasgow 22 May 2018

The EU Network Code – Requirements for Generators passed into UK law in May 2016 and comes into full effect in April 27 2019.

It will affect every generator that is to be connected to the electricity system in Great Britain from 27 April 2019. The effects for generation connected to the transmission system are quite modest. However there are significant new requirements for generation of all sizes, right down to domestic scale photovoltaic generation, that connects to the distribution system.

To help stakeholders appreciate all the implications of the new law, as well as the background and context, the ENA held two briefing sessions – in London on 14 May 2018 and Glasgow on 22 May 2018.

These briefing sessions were aimed at those who needed to understand the general implications in terms of new manufacturing and compliance requirements for generation equipment and the processes for connection etc. Whilst the difference in requirements for different sizes of generators was discussed it was not intended to cover the engineering technical requirements in detail. The new GB documents, EREC G98 and EREC G99 were introduced and the implications for pre and post RfG connections was outlined.

The sessions ran from 1030 to 1600.

The Briefing Session presentation slides are available to download here.

Joint Panel workgroups GC 0100 and 0101 Distribution Code Workshops

6th and 10th of October.

These two days have been set aside as additional time in the joint Panel WG GC 0100 and GC 0101 to review and discuss the specific legal text of the draft Engineering Recommendations G98 and G99 and the consequential draft revisions to the Distribution Code.

These two days are provided to help WG colleagues become familiar with the Distribution documentation legal text required to implement the EU Network Code Requirements for Generators.

The legal drafting of G98 and G99 is yet far from complete and a discussion on the points that GC 100 and 101 WG colleagues feel important will be very valuable in tightening up, and wherever possible, simplifying the text.

Workshop material.

  1. the GC 0100 and GC 0101 G98 consultation draft legal text;
  2. the GC 0102 G99 draft legal text;
  3. the amended D Code (which should form part of GC0102 but has not yet been circulated)
  4. review of GC0100 consultation comments - A & B
  5. review of GC0101 consultation comments - A

6th October workshop will be held at Energy UK

10th October workshop will be held at ENA
