  • Insights Solution – providing operational data relating to the GB Electricity Balancing and Settlement arrangements
  • Settlement Solution – an improved platform allowing for scalable, flexible and modular settlement operations.

Benefits of Kinnect

By having a strong, scalable digital platform we will support industry innovation, allow faster delivery of change, reduce the need for manual processes, which will ultimately mean we can support the industry in the future as we move at pace to achieve the demands for Net Zero.
