A key challenge in our Lincolnshire Low Carbon Hub project was to develop and trial novel commercial arrangements for flexible grid connections. Engage facilitated workshops with internal and external stakeholders to identify and assess a range of options, and developed a novel contractual framework. Their sector knowledge and stakeholder management skills were key to us selecting an option to take forward to successful trials. The new arrangements have been rolled out and are now offered on a ‘business-as-usual’ basis to generators wishing to connect anywhere in our distribution area. This has enabled connection of significant volumes of distributed generation at reasonable cost.
