Network Innovation Competition
The project will modify an existing 400kV substation into an easily
reconfigurable, field trial facility. This offgrid facility will replicate a
live substation environment to overcome the operational barriers
associated with the implementation of innovative methods and
technologies on the electricity network.
A facility, managed through an advisory board comprising industry
stakeholders, available to all GB Network Licensees. The project
develops the facility from a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 5 to a
regulated, sustainable facility, TRL 8.
