The methodology developed in this analysis will help improve the development and use of future net-zero cross vector energy scenarios produced for WPD, WWU and other networks. This will lead to more effective planning process for future network investment. Specifically, this process will support:
- Decarbonisation and planning for net-zero for distribution networks – it will in particular support improved network planning for technologies with a cross vector impact such as hybrid heat pumps.
- Efficient and effective scenario processes – a key impact would be to update the methodologies currently used for distribution scenario processes, to allow the outputs from these studies to be utilised by other stakeholders in addition to gas and electricity networks.
