Our Innovation Projects
We are continuously thinking big, starting small and scaling fast with our world-leading innovation projects. We are becoming the utility of the future and delivering value to our customers.
LV Engine is an NIC funded innovation project which aims to facilitate the uptake of Low Carbon Technologies (LCTs) through the use of a globally innovative Smart Transformer.
FUSION is a key project for the transition to a Distribution System Operator. FUSION will trial commoditised local demand-side flexibility through a structured and competitive market, based on the Universal Smart Energy Framework (USEF).
Dumfries and Galloway Integrated Network Management
This ground-breaking project will implement a revolutionary, wide-scale integrated network management zone across the area of the network which will improve network access for connected and connecting customers.
Angle-DC is demonstrating a smart and flexible method. The project’s method is creating a controllable bidirectional Direct Current (DC) link between two sections of our network and providing voltage support.
Phoenix is an innovative project that is introducing Hybrid Synchronous Condensers to the GB network by combining two technologies, synchronous condensers and Static Compensators.
FITNESS (Future Intelligent Transmission Network Substation) is demonstrating sustainable design, deployment and operational control of a multi-vendor digital substation. FITNESS is using the latest protection, control and information technologies that can be applied in a standard and scalable approach.
VISOR (Visualisation of Real Time System Dynamics using Enhanced Monitoring) is a ground breaking collaboration project improving the visibility of dynamic system behaviour and enhancing network resilience whilst delivering savings to customers.
SP Energy Networks, the only UK utility to be part of this pioneering venture, is supporting MIGRATE by leading Work Package 2.
