The IFI funded Load Allocation project was initiated in 2011 to support a key
element of our future network strategy, namely maximising the potential of
our existing assets to support future load growth expected from the
decarbonisation of heating and transport. The project has met all the
defined objectives at and has enabled a range of scenarios to be developed
based on different penetrations of new demands that do not follow either
the load or demand profile of traditional network loads with the objective of
identifying the potential reinforcement locations and costs.
For Phase 2 of the project a number of additional tasks were developed to
exploit the capabilities of the software developed for Stage 1.
