The Centre is run for the benefit of the GB Electricity Network and its consumers; any revenues earned will either be returned to consumers or reinvested for future benefit.

During the funded period (until March 2021), the Centre will not charge GB Transmission Network Licensees for these services, however a charge will be made for other organisations using the Centre. These charges will be waived for the first year of operation, and will be discounted for the remaining 3 years.

Any organisation can request any of the services offered by the Centre using the Request Form.

If you would like to request any support from The National HVDC Centre, please download the Request Form and email the completed form to
