Our energy system is undergoing a radical transformation. One of the key challenges at a time of rapid change is to plan and invest in the future of network infrastructure.
Project duration: November 2015 onwards
Regen are working with Western Power Distribution (WPD), UK Power Networks (UKPN) and Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) to develop detailed local scenario analysis for the future development of distributed energy. The growth potential of network connected renewable energy is examined, including electricity generation technologies, storage and disruptive demand technologies. Growth potential is analysed on a local geographic basis, down to primary and secondary substation areas, up to 2032, and against National Grid’s Future Energy Scenarios.
Our reports for WPD’s licence areas are now available:
WPD has published its reports on the licence areas, Strategic network investment, based on the growth potential data we provided, which assesses options for reinforcement and provides recommendations for ‘low regret’ investment.
