The update to the models will be focused on including data and conclusions on the latest best understanding from LCL on the contributions from;

  • Domestic power demand from extensive smart meter data trials

  • Demand profiles from electric vehicles, heat pumps and small scale embedded generation

It will also include an update to the interface for the LRE model and a transfer of the model and operation to UK Power Networks.

The objective of the project  is an update of the following  Models and Tools:

•              Load Forecast (Element Energy) model

•              Transform model

•              WinDEBUT

•              Load Related Expenditure model

 

 

The following criteria will be considered when assessing whether the project has been successful:

- Transfer of all relevant best learning from LCL to UK Power Networks business models and tools identified above

- Update of the WinDebut model which is available to all DNOs

- Delivery of a new version of the LRE model with a user interface

- Transfer of the updated LRE model to UK Power Networks
