DNO to DSO – delivering the future power system

Network Theatre

With a rapidly evolving electricity market seeing significant deployment of decentralised power, more involved and educated consumers and the need for increased flexibility, networks must transform the way they work, embracing new structures and responsibilities.  This session will explore the transition of the Distribution Network Operator to the Distribution System Operator, examining recent strategies from the individual networks and the collaborative ENA ‘Open Network’ project.
