Forecasting, flexibility monitoring and data are among several priority areas for early investment for the DNO/DSO transition, according to Smarter Grid Solutions (SGS).
UK Power Networks (UKPN) has unveiled a refreshed version of its electric vehicle (EV) strategy, placing emphasis on forecasting and strategic investment.
Electricity North West (ENW) is to rollout voltage control devices at its substations to optimise its network, reducing consumer bills and freeing capacity.
Ofgem has officially replied to an article in the Guardian that accused the energy watchdog of stalling the electric vehicle (EV) rollout, saying that is does “not fully reflect Ofgem’s position.”
In an effort to develop an all-inclusive energy system, the Energy Networks Association’s Open Networks Project has launched a series of ‘Community Energy Forums’.
Northern Powergrid (NPg) is to launch a fleet of electric vans with on-board energy storage systems to restore power during power cuts and planned maintenance.
Consumers simply aren’t aware of the value of their inherent energy flexibility, and more needs to be done to bring them up to speed and help them realise their potential.
There is still a "long way to go" in the transition from DNOs to DSOs, but if the incentives are set up right within the regulations, it will “drive the culture” of the networks.
A UKPN trial aiming to alleviate capacity constraints has freed up 95MW through the use of new technology.
