We are committed to assessing non-network options alongside network solutions to address network constraints where feasible and cost effective to do so.
By taking this approach, we can defer or avoid significant capital costs associated with network investment and deliver benefits to consumers through lower transmission prices.
In our planning, we consider demand management solutions such as load curtailment or shifting, embedded generation and energy conservation measures wherever these factors reduce load on the network.
We are a proven leader in innovative demand side management, integrating demand response into network planning and development of major projects. We have been recognised for our work, claiming the Best Demand Response category of the Energy Efficiency Council Awards.
