Smart Metering & Smart Grids Innovation Project Support
We assisted a network operator in assessing demand side response (DSR) market models, applicable in a specific sub-set of their operating region. We provided analysis and modelling of the commercial and cost implications of the proposed DSR models. We designed and defined the process and the system changes required for implementation of a selected DSR model.
Distribution Network Operator - We provided strategic consulting to a Distribution Network Operator (DNO) in developing business processes, commercial incentives, stakeholder management and approaches to consumer engagement, to support implementation of a DSR intervention in private domestic properties. The stakeholder engagement and consumer engagement workstreams included defining and executing a stakeholder management plan taking a consultative approach, and using a number of methods including workshops, with a wide range of industry stakeholders, consumer and community representatives.
Distribution Network Operator – We provided industry expertise and support to a DNO’s LCNF project in finding novel commercial arrangements for smart grid connection arrangements. We assisted the DNO with stakeholder engagement and with the specification of additional terms to be included in offer letters and connection agreements for innovative connections, and will be supporting work with the DNO’s legal advisors, further stakeholder consultation and liaison with Ofgem.
Distribution Network Operator – We assisted a DNO in assessing demand side response market models that are applicable, and most likely to achieve success, in a specific sub-set of their operating region. The outcomes of the project will be included in the network operator’s business plan for the area. We provided analysis and modelling of the commercial and cost implications of proposed demand side response models and designed and defined the process and system changes required for implementation of a selected demand side response model.
