Innovation

We will be looking at opportunities for a number of technical innovations for the use of electricity from the solar farms, including supplying local consumers (currently the subject of an OFGEM consultation), and installing storage to feed electricity to the grid at peak times.  We are already partnering with a local software company to make data on local electricity supply and demand available on our website – see OpenLV below.  Members will be given regular updates on this work, and will have opportunities to take part in the project.  If you are not already a member please complete the application for membership here: Membership Application Form.

OpenLV 300x66 - Innovation

OpenLV is a ground-breaking project that’s making local electricity data openly available for the
first time ever, to benefit local communities and the wider energy industry. OpenLV is led by
project partners Western Power Distribution and EA Technology. It is funded by Ofgem’s Network
Innovation Competition.

Real time data will be available from Autumn 2018 and will be displayed on this website.  Further information will be provided as it becomes available.
