RIIO – 1: Network Output Measures and Charging Statements

Under the RIIO (Revenue = Incentives + Innovation + Outputs) regulatory model, the companies’ performance is assessed by the regulator, using a set of primary outputs. These demonstrate how they will have delivered end services to consumers, customers and stakeholders.

Network Output Measures

The Network Output Measures (NOMs) Methodology is designed to show that the three transmission companies are providing consumers with long-term value for money. It provides a joint basis for measuring asset risk which is designed to direct investment in the right areas, enabling effective management of network risk. Using a risk-based approach, the transmission companies will assess their asset base and direct investment in order to control the risk those assets present to the network, to health & safety, and to the environment. This will ensure the transmission companies will continue to deliver their primary outputs in the future.

Charging Statments and Information

As the licence holder for the transmission network in the north of Scotland, each year we set out our charges, our allowed revenue, for investing in and maintaining transmission infrastructure. National Grid Electricity Transmission plc (NGET) as the system operator for electricity transmission in Great Britain considers for approval based on our justification.

Charges are categorised as either a General System Charge, Site Specific Charges, or Other Charges.

The General System Charge reflects the cost of installing, operating, replacing, developing and maintaining our network infrastructure.

Site Specific Charges reflect the cost of purchase and installation of the connection assets and other responsibilities such as site safety, security and environmental protection and statutory and local liaison, as well as providing standby and out-of-hours service throughout the year.

We may also at the request of NGET carry out other work, which is not covered by General System Charge or Site Specific Charges, including outage rescheduling, costs associated with processing applications for connection to the system, or obtaining consents.
