ET - Transition to low carbon future
This project will develop a comprehensive whole-system methodology, and a relevant prototype tool, to quantify, with high temporal and spatial resolution, the electricity transmission network infrastructure impacts of heat and transport decarbonisation scenarios. The method, which will consider multi-energy vector modelling of heat and transport, will be demonstrated with comprehensive case studies based on Greater Manchester. The project will also explore innovative solutions to meet future energy demands to deliver cost benefits to the consumers. It will review the traditional way of bottom-up electrical network reinforcement approach.
1. Assess the impact of different solutions, for the decarbonisation of heating and transport, on the electricity transmission network infrastructure requirements by multi energy vector modelling.
2. Develop a prototype tool for whole system modelling with high spatial and temporal resolution.
