The learning from the SAVE project is feeding into several projects and business processes. The learning is part of the foundation facilitating the transition from DNO to a DSO allowing a more active role in the management of the networks. The DSO transition is happening across the country and will play a vital role in the move to a low carbon society.
It’s all about us working more closely with communities and residents to build networks that work for everyone – safe, reliable, low carbon, flexible and affordable.
As a result of the SAVE project SSEN are working to contract flexibility services from community organisations in order to delay or prevent network reinforcements, which can be expensive and disruptive. Flexibility allows us to make the most of the assets we already have, and utilise assets that exist in communities, while rewarding them for supporting us.
