Research and development into all aspects of Distribution Overhead Lines
The Module 2 programme aims to optimise overhead network design, improve operational performance, maximise potential benefits, improve financial performance, and minimise risk associated with overhead networks, whilst having due regard for the environment and energy efficiency.

The programme also aims to deliver continuous improvement in terms of safety and environmental performance of the overhead network to meet the individual business requirements of Member Companies. Several of the projects contribute to the industry’s knowledge of variation in climate change. The projects all address real problems that have been identified by the module steering group members as significant and which require technical investigation and development.
