The application process

Generator owners have the opportunity to apply for a financial contribution during one of the four application windows between October 2019 and August 2020. 

Application windows

Window Opening day Closing day Duration
Window 1 02/10/2019 12/11/2019 6 weeks
Window 2 13/11/2019 11/02/2020 3 calendar months
Window 3 12/02/2020 12/05/2020 3 calendar months
Window 4 13/05/2020 11/08/2020 3 calendar months


Applications will be evaluated by National Grid ESO and shall be assessed on a set of criteria specified by the ENA. Decisions on applications will be made within 20 business days of the closing date of the application window.

One of the assessment criteria relates to how soon a generator can make the necessary changes, and therefore there is a benefit in applying early.
