Project duration: February 2020 to October 2020

In May 2020, Western Power Distribution and Regen ran a series of consultation webinars on the Distribution Future Energy Scenarios (DFES) in each of the four Western Power Distribution licence areas.

Regen and WPD discussed the local factors influencing the development of electric vehicles, wind and solar farms, energy storage and low-carbon heat with over 200 stakeholders. These form an integral part of the WPD 2020 DFES project, which looks at the uptake and deployment of renewable and fossil fuel power generation, energy storage, low-carbon heat, and electric vehicles, as well as analysing planned housing developments. To read about the project in full click here.

A key part of this project is engagement and consultation with local stakeholders, from local government to developers, installers, and community energy groups. Feedback from these webinars will directly influence the models and assumptions that are made during this analysis, the results of which will be finalised in the autumn of 2020. Please see the attached document for information on the webinar agenda and briefing.

A preview of the West Midlands licence area stakeholder engagement report is shown below, the reports cover who attended the events, the results of the live questions, and a summary of how we are incorporating direct stakeholder feedback in the modelling for WPD DFES 2020.


Thanks to all those who attended.
