The Customer Led Network Revolution (CLNR) is the largest UK smart grid trial project thus far. A total of 87 smart grid interventions and a hierarchical control system will be trialled and evaluated as part of this project. Developing a trial programme which enables comprehensive evaluation of the interventions and all combinations thereof is a non-trivial task. In this work a pair of complementary trial design and trial analysis methodologies are proposed. The trial design methodology enables rationalisation of the number and the duration of the trials. The resultant trial programme results are systematically augmented and expanded by the application of the VEEEG (Validation, Extension, Extrapolation, Enhancement and Generalisation)trial analysis methodology.
