Gas Distribution Networks
This project will consider investment planning and prioritisation of mains replacement within the gas distribution network, taking into
consideration the approaches adopted by the UK water industry for water distribution networks.
Investment planning is the development of plans to deliver stable or improving levels of service to customers at appropriate levels of
expenditure and efficient allocation of resources. These plans are justified to the Regulators on the basis of current and future risk of
Prioritisation of mains replacement is based on the implementation of investment plans to provide the required levels of service at least
cost over the long term.
Following this research the gas distribution companies should collectively be able to:
- Steer the future of investment planning practice for the gas sector
- Improve efficiency and effectiveness of mains replacement schemes
- Gain knowledge and experience of tried and tested approaches for investment planning based on service failure risk.
