The electricity distribution network is becoming more complex as customers adopt new low-carbon technologies (LCTs). With the rise of renewable energy, the grid is evolving – transitioning from a centralised to a decentralised system, with energy generated at both ends.
The increasing demand for more power, coupled with the demand to reduce carbon emissions, creates a tough challenge for network operators who have to meet the clean energy ambitions of Net Zero. Overhauling ageing networks is critical to keep progress on track.
Networks need novel approaches to manage the increase in demand and complex, unpredictable network flow patterns resulting from the uptake of solar PV, energy storage and electric vehicles (EV). That's where we come in…
