Electricity Balancing System (EBS)

The Electricity Balancing System (EBS) is a new tool for managing the balancing of supply and demand in an increasingly changing world. We're aiming to automate these services, which would be a world first.

The EBS provides us with the capability to balance the electricity supply more economically and manage the increased complexity with solar, wind, inertia and voltage control. It will give us the foundation to respond to this change and improve our ability to manage the associated operational challenges.
