The National Electricity Registration Scheme (NERS) has been developed to allow providers (commonly known as independent connections providers) to carry our contestable connection work.
If you wish to carry out contestable connection work within the contestable market, as defined by OFGEM, you must be accredited under this scheme. Our NERS Consultants can assist you in ensuring your management systems are fully compliant with NERS accreditation requirements and will pass any 3rd party assessment.
What are the benefits?
NERS accreditation under the scheme will provide you with the following benefits:
All distribution network operators (DNOs) on mainland UK recognise this scheme and, provided that you hold the appropriate UK utility schemes accreditations, you the NERS provider can compete for work within the contestable connections market.

All contractors who wish to undertake any part of the contestable connections process including project management, design, cable installation etc. require the relevant accreditation.
The scopes of registration are as follows:
