10 September 2019

Reactive Technologies Chief Executive Officer Marc Borrett commented: “National Grid has acted swiftly to identify the causes of the recent frequency events and it is clear from its new report that it has taken several steps to ensure it is fit to respond to future system needs, including incorporating technologies and initiatives to facilitate the greater integration of renewables onto the UK grid.

Reactive Technologies’ recent commercial partnership with National Grid ESO to start providing the first ever direct inertia measurement service based on its unique patented technology is a clear example of its efforts to proactively seek innovative solutions and ensure future system stability at a fair price for consumers. By working with Reactive to directly measure inertia in order to enhance operational decision-making, National Grid ESO is at the forefront of addressing the kinds of challenges all system operators around the world will face as the necessary transition to renewables continues to transform our grids”.
