The New Thames Valley Vision (NTVV) full bid submission [Ref. 01] defines the Successful Delivery Reward Criteria (SDRC) that must be met in line with the project milestones. The full bid submission should be read in conjunction with the relevant change control documentation [Ref. 02 and Ref. 03].
The key topics covered within this report as defined by the SDRC evidence requirements are as follows:

  • Installation: requirements, permissions, unit costs, safety considerations and timescales;
  • Battery storage: demand shifting from individual and aggregated operation, management of network voltage, thermal, power quality and losses; and
  • Benchmarking of the battery storage methods.

SDRC 9.4a outlines the initial hypothesis and deployment plan for the trials of energy storage and power electronics as part of the NTVV project.
