Several small value projects are under development with a number of external parties, managed on behalf of the DNOs through the Energy Networks Association (ENA).
The projects listed below address real issues which have been identified by the ENA Working Groups as significant requiring technical investigation and development:

  • Earthing Project: The aim is to develop new techniques to assess the impact of lower voltage earth electrodes on higher voltage hot zones and to measure the resistance of distribution substation earth systems

  • Climate Change and Network Resilience Project: The objective of this project is to investigate whether the electricity (both transmission and distribution) networks risk to weather-related faults may change in the future as a result of climate change

  • Smart Metering Studies: ENA commissioned Engage Consulting Limited to undertake a comprehensive analysis of Networks requirements for a smart metering system for electricity and gas.
