Event Details

Final learning and dissemination event on our Smart Street project.

The four-year £11 million project to trial active optimisation of the low voltage network is now complete. As part of the project we have trialled innovative voltage control techniques to enable our networks and customers’ appliances to perform more efficiently and make it easier to adopt low carbon technologies onto the electricity network. Smart Street is the first demonstration in Great Britain of a fully centralised, low voltage network management and automation system.

The trials began in January 2016 and ran for a two-year period which enabled us to compare trial data with normal network operation and calculate the overall benefits of Smart Street.

Organiser

Electricity North West, Strategic Planning team

Electricity North West owns, operates and maintains the North West’s electricity distribution network, connecting 2.4 million properties, and more than 5 million people in the region to the National Grid.

Our network covers a diverse range of terrain, from isolated farms in rural areas such as Cumbria, to areas of heavy industry and urban populations including Manchester.

Part of our role as network operator is to plan for the future. To meet government carbon reduction targets we need to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels like gas and petrol and change to renewable sources. As a result the demand for electricity in the UK is expected to increase dramatically by 2050.

As well as meeting additional demand as we start to use more electric heat pumps and electric vehicles we also need to adapt so that low carbon generation sources such as wind and solar power can connect directly to our network.
