Gas Distribution Networks
This study will be run across two stages;
Stage 1 – With regard to gas-CHP technologies the study will consider the business models available to GDNs only at a high-level, in order to identify the value streams that GDNs could access to varying extents through different forms of engagement.
Stage 2 - With regard to gas-CHP technologies the study will consider the potential levels of engagement for GDNs and appropriate commercial arrangements in greater detail, including consultation with the GDN partners (as well as technology providers) in order to understand the feasibility of different models and how they would impact on GDN businesses.
The success criteria for the Project are:
- A clear understanding & definition of widespread uptake
- A clear identification of the benefits that could be available from engaging with the widespread deployment of selected gas CHP technologies and evaluation of the business models that could be employed by GDNs to access these benefits
- Clear identification and quantification of technical/commercial/regulatory challenges to GDNs from the widespread deployment of gas CHP technologies
- Clear recommendations for next steps for GDNs to engage with the most relevant gas CHP technologies, to mitigate any negative effects and maximise benefits from their deployments
