UK Grid Certification has changed to EREC G98 and G99.

Introduction The new standards occur from 27th of April 2019 and called Engineering Recommendation (EREC) G98 and G99. After that day any generators connected to UK distribution will have to comply. These two regulations, published by the Energy Networks Association (ENA), replace the G83/2 and G59/3 respectively. These new standards are applicable for all new solar, wind, battery storage, CHP […]
