Our Enhanced Understanding of Network Losses project with Newcastle University started in April 2018. The project has been broken into five work packages, with an aim to enable us to better understand, and make decisions pertaining to, the unavoidable losses which take place in our network. We have produced several reports and have disseminated the initial learning at the 25th International Conference and Exhibition on Electricity Distribution (CIRED 2019) in Madrid, Spain.
As this project draws to a close, we will further build the learning into our Customer Led Distribution System (CLDS) project: better understanding of local market operation, customer value propositions and impact on DSO transition. Internally, learning will be embedded into business as usual via the next iteration of our code of practice for the methodology of assessing losses and our future losses strategy.
