The project will evaluate the operational impact that these technologies will have on the growth of a Power Island by reviewing international experience and performing detailed desktop analysis.
This project aims to evaluate the capability of various non-traditional technologies to support Black Start restoration for the GB electricity system, and the changes that are needed to make these resources Black Start-capable.
