The UK Government has published the “Scotland Analysis: Energy” report, which examines the potential impact of Scottish independence on Great Britain’s energy industry. The paper argues that the current single market has driven the Scottish energy industry’s success, has helped to keep Scottish energy bills down, and is the most effective way of managing energy liabilities. The paper concludes that the current integrated GB energy system could not continue as it is now if Scotland became a separate independent state.
E.ON has invited local community members to attend one or both of two planned final public information sessions for the Isles Wind Farm. Based on comments from previous public hearings, E.ON has made amendments to its original plans that featured up to 45 turbines. The final proposal now calls for a 24 turbine wind farm, located about 1.5 km to the east of Newton Aycliffe in County Durham. The facility would have a capacity up to 48 MW and could generate enough electricity for approximately 27,000 homes.
The Office of the Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem) has announced a project to reform the industry’s settlement arrangements, which give suppliers incentives to buy energy to meet the power their customers consume every half hour throughout the day. Up to now, that half hour amount is estimated by taking meter readings to determine the consumer’s total energy consumption then breaking up between half-hour periods. But since smart meters can record actual consumption each half hour, there is no longer a need to estimate it.
E.ON, which has extended its European partnership with GreenWave Reality for smart home solutions, also continues to test smart home technologies via the Thinking Energy trial that involves 75 family homes in Milton Keynes. The initiative is designed to develop and test ways to manage energy use in the home resulting in improved convenience and cost savings.
The Enel Group has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the State Grid Corporation of China to collaborate on smart grid technologies and share experiences in the implementation of renewable energy generation. State Grid is the world’s largest and China’s dominant distribution and transmission utility.
A new collaboration will integrate Silver Spring Networks’ IPv6 smart grid networking platform with Smarter Grid Solutions autonomous grid management technology. This solution enables electrical grid operators to better manage renewable energy sources and grid devices by improving the overall reliability and efficiency of the grid.
