Regen is supporting National Grid Electricity Distribution to understand the priorities of National Grid’s customers and the potential market for the innovative Take Charge substation design.
Project duration: December 2023 – May 2024
The context: Take Charge
National Grid Electricity Distribution recently undertook a successful innovation project ‘Take Charge’, designing and installing a compact primary substation at Exeter Services to support Moto Services’ EV charging requirements. In the long term, there is the potential for standardised, modular and compact primary substations to deliver large amounts of capacity from the distribution networks.
In support of this work, Regen is carrying out a select number of interviews on behalf of National Grid to understand the priorities of National Grid’s customers and the potential market for new substation designs. This customer engagement, building on Regen’s ongoing work to deliver National Grid’s Distribution Future Energy Scenarios, is supporting a wider project focused on rolling out and commercialising the innovative Take Charge substation.
We are exploring the following sectors: EV charging, heat networks, data centres and maritime. Regen will share the results with National Grid in the form of an independent report.
