As the regulated DNO for the north of Scotland and central southern England, SSEN is required to submit a business plan to Ofgem for the next price control period, RIIO-ED2
Start Date:

As part of our stakeholder engagement programme we are hosting events for stakeholders to support the development of Local Area Energy Plans (LAEPs) and SSEN's annual Distribution Network Future Energy Scenario (DFES) analysis for our central southern England and north of Scotland licence areas.

LAEP is a process to inform, shape and enable key aspects of the transition to a net zero energy system. As a DNO, our role is to enable this transition for all customers and network users.

The DFES process enables SSEN to have a more detailed view of what will connect to their network in the future. From domestic low carbon technologies such as electric vehicle chargers or heat pumps, through to larger energy generation and storage projects such as commercial batteries or wind farms. Developed with Regen, the DFES assesses the growth of projects connecting to SSEN's networks out to 2050.

The shift to net zero energy systems will require changes to our network, as electricity demand and the need to connect cleaner sources of energy generation increases. As part of RIIO ED2, SSEN will therefore need to make strategic investments to its network to meet this need. The purpose of these events is:

To engage stakeholders on the LAEP process and how SSEN can support all local stakeholders in developing and implementing their plans;

To tap into stakeholders' local and domain knowledge and increase our understanding of local investment needs for the electricity system, future energy technologies and developments which will influence our plans for future network developments;

Discuss the potential growth and location of future energy technologies and developments;

To gauge views on the uptake of new or disruptive technologies

This virtual event, is a web-based demonstration of the performance HVDC Grid Protection System looking at interoperability, primary and back-up protection.
Start Date:
Wed 09 Sep 2020 13:00
End Date:

Location:
Virtual event
Region:

Category:

Details:
Integral to the development of the meshed offshore grid is the ability to protect it in such a way to isolate faults while retaining as much transfer capability as possible. Recently, standalone HVDC protection relays or intelligent electronic devices (IEDs), essential for selective DC line protection, are under development by various industrial vendors and research institutes. To increase the technology readiness level, improve confidence in the maturity of the technology and show that it is in principle ready for real-world application, PROMOTioN will demonstrate the IED performance. To this end, fully hardware implemented IED prototypes will be tested against realistic HVDC grid models being run in a real-time simulation environment.

Within WP9 of the PROMOTioN project (https://www.promotion-offshore.net/), there has been significant testing undertaken at The National HVDC Centre (part of SHE Transmission) and originally we had planned on having a physical demonstration event here at the beginning of May but that was not possible given the current situation. Even though we had had to go virtual we have worked hard to keep it as a true demonstration format and are actually demonstrating the testing using video. The benefit of going virtual is that we can welcome more people to the event, I hope that you can join us there!

The challenge we face have become even greater in recent months as a result of COVID-19. It is now more important than ever that our stakeholders have the opportunity to help us play our full part in that response.

In developing our new business plan for RIIO-ED2, which will be submitted next year, we need to balance the need to facilitate zero carbon growth, connect new technologies to our network with ensuring that the service we provide is reliable, resilient and affordable for everyone. At the workshop,you'll have the chance to share your view on the options we are developing in key areas such a network resilience and sustainability.

The virtual workshops will replace our annual in-person but will still be as interactive, allowing for targeted 'virtual table' discussions. They will include short presentations from the senior SSEN team followed by breakout discussions where your feedback will directly inform our short, medium and long-term business activities.

The topics for discussion will include:

- Understanding our stakeholder-led priorities: helping shape how we can bet delier on them with maximum benefit to customers and communities
- Adapting our service in response to COVID-19: helping us understand changing customer priorities in light of the external environment
- Maintaining a reliable and resilient network: understanding current progress and helping guide us on the reliability and resilience requirements for our RIIO-ED2 plan
- Shaping our sustainable ambition: understanding how we will help meet net zero emissions and explore the use of science-based targets for our ED2 plan
- Building the smart, flexible network of the future: helping ensure our plans for the transition are fully shaped by customer and stakeholder needs
