The way we generate, use and supply power is changing.

To enable the electricity network to adapt to more distributed generation connecting to the grid and to constraints on the network, network operators are trialling new approaches.

Regen SW in partnership with Energy Networks Association, Electricity North West, Northern Powergrid, SP Energy Networks and Community Energy England ran an engaging event for communities who are interested in this area.

This event looked at how to positively engage local communities in this innovation.  It heard about the exciting network innovation projects already taking place with communities, looked at lessons learnt and discussed opportunities for further collaboration.
