Gas System Operator Incentives


National Grid is the System Operator (SO) of the gas transmission network. To imitate the commercial pressures that would normally apply to a company in a fully competitive market, National Grid is subject to a number of performance incentives.  These SO incentives aim to maintain and improve National Grid's daily operational efficiency and are subject to renegotiation at set intervals.
 Documents relating to previous consultations can be found in the library 
Our Supporting Information document provides an overview of all of the Gas System Operator incentives including a description of the schemes and our recent performance.
