Problem

UKPN were experiencing huge volume of connection applications for renewable generation, alternative approaches including grid reinforcements were expensive and resulted in long timescales before being fully connected.

Solution

UKPN deployed ANM Strata across a region of their network to deliver managed hosting capacity and increase renewable connections. ANM Strata provided real-time constraint management, adapting to network reconfiguration and minimising curtailment volumes.

Result

Over 20 generators totalling 100 MW of renewable capacity has been connected saving tens of £millions in avoided grid upgrades. Connection time for DER customers has fallen from years to weeks.
