Battery Storage required to accommodate Renewable Energy Sources by UKPN alone.

October 5, 2018

UK Power Networks has laid out its vision for a ‘flexibility first’ approach in the coming years, including procuring a forecast 206MW in place of network reinforcement.


The distribution network operator (DNO) today outlined its flexibility roadmap from 2019/20 onwards, due largely to the network’s concern over the rise of electric vehicles within its network area.


Sotiris Georgiopoulos, head of smart grid development at UKPN, said in London: "We are an industry in flux [and] in transition, we are moving away from the old business model of centralised generation into the new business model where a lot of the generation - currently 30% - is actually connected on the distribution network. This is expected to increase over the years to come."


This has already seen UKPN accept 1.2GW of energy storage application, on top of the 177MW already connected.
