This project is run in South Wales to develop an understanding of how low voltage (LV) electricity networks can best cope with the future, low-carbon world. This will help us and the other UK electricity network operators as we develop the smart grids of the future.
This builds on the work of the Welsh Assembly Government in encouraging the use of new green technologies such as photovoltaic (PV) solar cells, use of heat pumps and improving insulation in homes and businesses.
The project has been approved by the energy regulator Ofgem and is funded through customers’ electricity bills.
