Flexibility platform provider Piclo has completed a clean sweep of Great Britain’s networks by signing up Western Power Distribution (WPD) to its Piclo Flex marketplace.
Historic datasets and artificial intelligence are to be used to help Western Power Distribution (WPD) predict where new energy technologies like electric vehicles or solar panels will be deployed in the future.
In part two of Current±'s catch-up with the Open Networks Project, chair Nigel Turvey and head of innovation at the Energy Networks Association, Randolph Brazier, look at the role of data in how the networks are operated and tackle the 'flexibility first' trend sweeping the sector.
In the first part of Current±'s latest chat with the Open Networks Project, chair Nigel Turvey and head of innovation at the Energy Networks Association, Randolph Brazier, look back at the role of stakeholder engagement in ensuring the continued success of the project.
Four electricity networks companies have collaborated on a programme of network improvements that stand to boost renewable connections and save consumers millions of pounds.
Following last month’s decision from Ofgem to allow Western Power Distribution (WPD) to access smart meter data from consumers’ homes, head of innovation and development at the Energy Networks Association Randolph Brazier explains what use of this data could mean for the future energy system.
All new housing developments should be fitted with three-phase electricity supply to update them from the single phase norm that has been in place since before World War II, according to a new report out today.
Ofgem has given Western Power Distribution (WPD) the green light to access domestic smart meter consumption data, which the distribution network operator (DNO) says will enable it to tackle “the increasing challenge” of embedded generation on its low voltage (LV) network.
Ofgem has confirmed that it will not open a mid-period review (MPR) of the current set of electricity distribution price controls, closing the door on potential changes to the RIIO ED-1 framework.
