The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Smart Energy – UK

Scottish Energy News 15th June 2017, The UK electricity supply industry – which includes Scottish Power and
Perth-based utility SSE as grid operators – have formally set out for the
first time how the role of local electricity networks will change as the UK
‘smart’ energy grid becomes a reality.

A ‘smart’ grid will give British households, businesses and communities the ability to take
advantage of a new range of energy technologies and services to take
control of their energy and lower their costs – including renewable
generation, energy storage and BPVs (battery-powered cars).SSE has led the
way in demonstrating the benefits of a distributed system operator
transition through the Northern Isles New Energy Solutions (NINES) project
in Shetland.

“The NINES project was the first time active network management was deployed at scale in the UK. The headline result was that NINES enabled a 200% increase in renewable energy alongside a significant reduction in diesel generation, which is traditionally used to meet fluctuations in supply and demand.” http://www.scottishenergynews.com/
