Ofgem plans to open up the development of onshore transmission links to competitive tender, mirroring the OFTO regime for offshore transmission.
Ofgem plans to competitively tender for the development of new onshore assets, something that until now has been restricted to offshore transmission assets.
The introduction of the Competitively Appointed Transmission Owners (CATO) regime is aimed at ensuring onshore transmission needs are met in an efficient and cost-effective way. The changes may affect developers of new generation projects seeking connection dates, while the timing of competitive tenders for important reinforcements will be critical to many generation projects.
