ETI appoints Element Energy to lead new energy infrastructure analysis project

21 June 2016

Currently the networks themselves are operated independently, but their role in the future energy system is expected to evolve and new networks are also set to emerge. Closer and more complex interactions between these different vectors, including partial or complete transitions from one vector to another, are a distinct opportunity. The full benefit of employing a multi-vector approach to energy supply will only be clear once the impacts on each part of the energy system are understood. So far multi-vector energy systems analysis has focussed on generation or demand side technologies. Understanding the implications for networks and their ability to contribute to multi-vector energy systems will help to provide a more complete picture. The results of this project will help to inform the best way to deploy new networks alongside existing networks, how best to transition from existing to new networks and what opportunity there is to make use of existing assets.
