What Is A “Distribution Network Operator” (DNOs)
Distribution Network Operator (DNO) is a company responsible for operating and maintaining the local electricity distribution networks. These networks are the lower voltage networks that deliver electricity from the high-voltage transmission system to homes, businesses, and other end-users.
The electricity supply chain in the UK consists of three main parts:
- Generation: Electricity is generated at power stations, which can be fueled by various sources such as coal, natural gas, nuclear, renewable energy (e.g., wind, solar, hydro), etc.
- Transmission: The high-voltage transmission network, operated by the National Grid, transports electricity from power stations to distribution points across the country.
- Distribution: DNOs take over from the transmission system at the distribution points and distribute electricity at a lower voltage level to consumers within their specific geographical areas.
The DNOs in the UK are licensed and regulated by Ofgem (Office of Gas and Electricity Markets) to ensure that they adhere to industry standards and provide a reliable and cost-effective electricity distribution service to consumers.
