The System Operability Framework (SOF) takes a holistic view of the
changing energy landscape to assess the future operation of GB electricity
networks. The SOF combines insight from the Future Energy Scenarios with a
programme of technical assessments to identify medium-term and
long-term requirements for operability.
Growth of low carbon and renewable generation, closures of conventional thermal
power stations and changing interactions across the whole of the power system are just
a few of the areas considered in the context of a rapidly changing power system.
Through extensive industry interaction, the SOF evolves year‑on‑year to
meet changing operational and stakeholder needs. It provides insight which sets
the direction for the development of codes, services and asset solutions
which can innovatively address the operability requirements of the future.
