Our energy networks – the wires and pipes that deliver energy to our door every day – are the backbone of this energy system and understanding what investment is needed to adapt to these radical changes is crucial to keeping the lights on, keeping everyone warm and meeting our net zero obligations.

In response to this challenge, since 2015, Regen has pioneered the Distributed Future Energy Scenarios (DFES) approach, an analysis based methodology that directly supports electricity and gas networks with long term strategy and network planning processes, at a localised level.
