Gas Future Operability Planning (GFOP)

The gas landscape has changed considerably in the past 15 years. We expect this trend to continue.  The GFOP describes how this ever-evolving landscape may impact operability in the short, medium and long-term.

We want you to tell us how your use of the gas network might change, provide evidence for other areas we should be looking at, and get in touch with us to explore opportunities for collaborative working.

March 2018 - Future gas-fired generation demand

In our November document, we introduced four drivers of change that could create future operability challenges over the next 30 years. This document takes a deeper look into one of these drivers: increasing gas-electricity interactions.  

Based on our findings, we have identified uncertainties that need further study to better understand the operability risk they pose. We want you to challenge our assumptions, telling us how you think gas-fired generation will change in the future.

November 2017 - A changing energy landscape

We tested the capabilities of our network through the lens of the Future Energy Scenarios, outlining the potential implications changing customer needs may have to the planning and operation of the gas network out to 2050.

We identified four drivers of change that could create operability challenges in the future. We want you to challenge our findings, and are keen to get your input on potential options to solve these challenges.
