National Grid – spatial modelling for Future Energy Scenarios

National Grid

Two members of the ITRC team were seconded to National Grid to help with spatial modelling of renewable technologies, embedded generation capacities and customer demand projections in the long-term. National Grid needed an analysis tool to:

  • integrate different data sources
  • assign transmission and distribution level assets to key renewable technologies (such as solar, wind and photovoltaic installations)
  • aggregate outputs from distribution regions to the grid.

The output was used with National Grid’s own Future Energy Scenarios forecasting models to provide a demand allocation, by area, for different technologies and scenarios.

National Grid identified our in-house capabilities and expertise as useful for their spatial analysis tool.
