In the Smart Systems and Flexibility Plan, published by the Government and Ofgem in July 2017, Ofgem committed to modify the generation licence to include electricity storage facilities. Ofgem has consulted on this and will respond shortly. In the meantime, storage operators can continue to apply to Ofgem for the existing generation licence.

We published a progress update to the Smart Systems and Flexibility Plan on the 16th October 2018.
