Objectives and outcomes of the project include:

·  Develop and deliver a long-term enduring solution to analysing the network for opportunity for timed connections. The software solution will identify the discrete periods in a 24-hour timescale what the typical peak demand on network is and how much additional load can be accommodated
·  Identify an appropriate solution (stand-alone or integrated to existing systems) and vendor with a suitable operation and maintenance arrangement
·  Determine the system requirements with the main users (UK Power Networks’ planning teams) and smart-grid development team
·  Establish an enduring policy for the application (i.e. how and when to offer customers this solution) and assessment (i.e. how to use the tool) of timed connections
·  Roll-out the tool and deliver training as necessary to encourage super user adoption
