The objective is to assess a city, combining all the energy demands (excluding any very large industry that will have a bespoke plan) now and in the future and matching that against low or zero carbon sources. The aim will be to design a 2050 optimised energy solution for the city that minimises the cost to the consumer. The design/designs will be costed at a feasibility level to assess solutions for this goal.

The main outcome of the work will assist stakeholders as follows:

Wales & West Utilities – understand how the gas network will be used in the selected city to indicate the most effective investment strategy for both current and future gas consumers. If representative, this could be replicated across the GB network.

Electricity Distribution Network Operators – understand how differing solutions may impact on the electricity network, inform their ED2 investment planning and potentially consider a more joined up strategy for energy overall.

Local Government – to assist with decarbonisation strategies for their city.
