About our Network Technology Trials
Traditionally, network operators dealt have with new loads on the powergrid by reinforcing the network. The Customer-Led Network Revolution project explored a range of smarter alternatives which sought to get the most out of existing assets and defer or avoid the need for costly reinforcement.
We trialled a range of network technologies, both singularly and in combination with customer demand side response, under the control of a sophisticated active network management system deployed for the project called the Grand Unified Scheme (GUS). The learning is proactively being shared with all UK network operators as collectively we strive to push forward the development of a smarter powergrid.
