This project builds on the work reported in the study: Internet Services for Planning Distributed Generation (DG) Connections funded by the Department of Trade and Industry.

The project will assess the following:

  • Location of areas where cost efficient DG connections can be realised

  • Visualisation of connection costs and network capacity

  • Visualisation of DG activity.
The project aims to provide DG developers access to suitable connection locations and estimated connection costs. The system uses an OS map background to allow users to position a proposed generator connection, DNO Long Term Development Statement (LTDS) data to derive suitable connection scenarios and costing information for the provision of budget estimates.
