Ofgem highlights work done to connect renewables to national grid
Ofgem has highlighted the progress it has made in the past 12 months connecting renewable energy power generation facilities to the national grid.

Publishing its annual report for the past year, the UK energy regulator suggested that energy companies are enjoying swifter connection to national networks for low-carbon generation as a result of its Transmission Access review.

Looking ahead to the future, Ofgem also revealed that it is currently working to establish the future direction of energy regulation policy in order to ensure that low-carbon supply targets are met.

In his foreword to the new report, Lord Mogg, the chairman of the watchdog, said that government support for a low-carbon economy by 2050 had been one of its key considerations in 2008-09.

"We are advancing the next review of revenue which will introduce a greater focus on consumers and new incentives for innovation to help make the transition to a low-carbon economy," he said.

Lord Mogg also called for a large-scale programme of investment to build networks capable of transporting power from all of the planned onshore and offshore windfarms.
