The project will explore whether controlling electrified residential heating in Scotland can be used to reduce the curtailment of renewable generation, without adversely impacting the distribution network.
Project objectives:
  • Analyse how well DNO and ESO constraints match with available flexibility from electric heating
  • Conduct cost benefit analysis (CBA) to identify if this is this cost effective, and how it scales up to all off-gas grid Scotland.
