Net Zero South Wales Project
We have recently finished a collaborative project with Wales and West Utilities and Regen with funding from the Network Innovation Allowance programme: Net Zero South Wales. This project aimed to develop an integrated Distribution Future Energy Scenarios (DFES) study which covered both the electricity and gas distribution networks in South Wales.
The analysis produced a set of joint electricity and gas Net Zero 2050 scenarios covering WPD and Wales & West Utilities’ shared distribution network region in South Wales, and explores a range of possible futures for our electricity and gas distribution networks. The main output of the project is a dataset of scenario projections provided to inform network planning and investment for WPD and Wales & West Utilities.
The project provided valuable insights into an integrated approach to gas and electricity scenario planning and exploring an increasingly flexible and cross-vector system. The outputs from this project are listed below:
