“Despatch” sometimes in UK English usage. A power station is said to be “despatched” when it receives an instruction to generate from an offtaker or from a grid operator. Who controls when a power station is despatched is an important factor in many power station projects. Renewable projects sometimes “self despatch”, in power systems where they have the preferential right to feed power into the grid in preference to stations operating on fossil fuels.
