This project will carry out a feasibility study to investigate what the infrastructure to support Energy Highways may look like and what technologies are either available or need developing to support this. An assessment of the potential performance and impact on the energy network will be carried out, and the potential hazards and opportunities will be assessed.
The objectives of this project are to  understand:

1.       The different system level designs of energy highways and which designs are likely to have more benefit than others.

2.       The impact that these systems could have on the network and what mitigations methods are possible.

3.       The impact that the electrification of commercial ships could have on the network in terms of load.
