Respond is a £5.5 million project funded by Ofgem’s Low Carbon Networks Fund which will deliver an intelligent approach to managing fault current.
As our customers move to a low carbon future, demand for electricity is set to grow which will also increase fault level on our network. When fault level rises higher than the rating of our equipment, traditionally we have to replace the equipment with a higher rated equivalent. Respond is a revolutionary solution to that problem and will bring significant savings for our customers and business. Running from January 2015 until October 2018, the project will maximise the use of our existing assets by releasing network capacity, allowing quick and lower cost connection for customers’ demand, enabling DNOs to support the UK’s decarbonisation strategy.
