We have been involved in the national energy efficiency agreement system since its inception in 1997. As part of the energy efficiency agreement, we are committed to improving the energy efficiency of the electricity network, reducing network losses and supporting our customers in their efforts to become more energy efficient.
The majority of the energy we consume takes the form of transmission and transformation losses on the electricity network
Electricity transmission and distribution always gives rise to energy losses, and the network operator is responsible for these. We are reducing losses by means of network planning, component selections and optimising the basic switching state.
We are committed to raising our customers' awareness of their own electricity usage and helping them to become more energy efficient. We offer customers an energy reporting service, energy efficiency advice and guidance on deploying their own independent electricity generation capacity.
Since 2015, all of the new distribution transformers we have procured have conformed to the low-loss ECO standard in accordance with the updated EU Directive. We use CO2-free electricity to compensate for losses on the electricity network.
