We're supporting local authorities and communities to understand their local electricity grid and develop their plans for decarbonising and reaching net zero.

What is LENZA?

LENZA is a geospatial planning platform powered by Advanced Infrastructure Technology Limited’s (AITL) LAEP+ software. It has been developed through SSEN Distribution’s Project RESOP. 

LENZA is designed to support users in their strategic energy planning endeavours, including the creation of Local Area Energy Plans (LAEPs) and, where relevant, Local Heat and Energy Efficiency Strategies (LHEES). The platform provides local authorities and their delivery partners with data and modelling tools that support informed decision making, including information on network capacity, building stock, and energy consumption.  

The tool empowers users to plan decarbonisation pathways, which in turn drive SSEN Distribution’s longer-term strategic network planning that will power local net zero ambition.
