EV Adoption will put an unprecedented stress on the Low Voltage network. As houses regularly draw more from local feeder stations to get from A to B, infrastructure could soon become overwhelmed leading to service disruptions across entire neighbourhoods. To add to the uncertainty, this increase in demand won’t be uniform which makes identifying the worst hit infrastructure is virtually impossible.
In order to meet the on-minute SLA demands of RIIO2, operators will need to strategically locate are reinforce high demand areas. We can show you what an increase in demand on your network would look like on an individual connection basis. With this loading information you can prioritise spending on network reinforcements using data, not gut-feeling.
