Future low carbon technologies, impacts and energy storage solutions on UK distribution networks

Lookup NU author(s): Harold Anuta, Dr Neal WadeORCiD



Investment and uptake of low carbon technologies is increasing due to government policies that are set to decarbonise the electricity grid in the UK Understanding future demand and generation in distribution networks where these low carbon technologies will prevail is important in planning and managing the networks. This paper assesses the impacts of future demand and generation in the form of heat pumps and solar photovoltaics, which could be evenly dispersed or locally concentrated on a medium voltage distribution network. The effectiveness of using energy storage to manage the resulting issues arising from such networks is investigated.
