Transforming the low voltage grid
15 October 2020
The transformation of the energy system to support the introduction and scaling up of low carbon technologies (LCTs) is putting pressure on the grid as never before. As we get ready for a future with far greater use of solar power, electric vehicles, electric heat pumps, and micro-combined heat and power systems as well as battery storage, we face a new reality. The more LCTs that are connected to our network, the greater the burden on the low voltage (LV) grid.
In this eBook, we cover key areas of managing the impacts of low carbon technologies on the LV grid:
- The UK’s decarbonisation journey
- Understanding the impact of LCTs on the LV network
- The impact of EV
- Market barriers to the adoption of LV monitoring
