SDRC 9.4a – Discussion Document: Energy Storage and Power Electronics on the Low Voltage Distribution Network
Power Electronics and Energy Storage
The New Thames Valley Vision will deploy power electronics and storage (ESMU) to allow the existing network to respond more flexibly. This will maintain the network within the technical standards identified above whilst also maintaining or improving the efficiency of the network as customers change their energy behaviour as they take up low carbon technologies.
The following applications will be trialled to support the technical requirements (identified above). In this table, the anticipated benefit is marked as ‘high’ where a direct improvement is expected and ‘medium’ where an indirect or consequential improvement is likely.
