This project defined network structures – focusing on
electricity, gas, heat and hydrogen – to determine how their development could help the wider energy system to transition to a decarbonised position. It analysed the costs of the potential different routes for delivering these wider
It also looked to identify and consider how to overcome
any risk that is inherent in these new network approaches whilst also
identifying what are the implications of such transitions for markets, policy
formation and regulation.
The Energy Systems Catapult delivered the project for the
ETI and provided an evidence base and recommendations for use by industry,
government, local authorities, policy-makers and regulators to support
decisions in regard to the UK’s future energy network infrastructure.
