This study analyses the new connection policy that seeks to lift restrictions on grid connection. The new policy is expected to result in an increase of investments in generation capacity and increasing levels of congestion on the national transmission system. A scenario-based, quantitative analysis of the net benefits of the new connection policy is presented. Here net benefits are defined as the potential increase of consumer surplus and producer gross margins minus the cost of congestion. Further, several alternative designs for a congestion management system are evaluated. In this assessment a series of advantages and disadvantages of each of these systems is identified and presented.
