Our story on network charging dampening Scottish renewables was featured in Smart Energy International, Energy Reporters, Energy Voice, Electrical Review and The National. James Brabben commented that “the significant amounts of generation in Northern Scotland are located away from areas of demand further south. This contributed to a much higher Transmission Network Use of System (TNUoS) bill for projects in the region.”
