Simplifying the UK's Move to Renewables with Alarm Grouping

Custom Analytics + Software Solutions

Traditionally, electricity distribution networks were designed for one-way power flow, from distributors to consumers. This design aligns with the original concept of electricity transmission. However, as prosumers become more prevalent, and technical solutions like grids and micro-grids emerge, it's only natural for the electricity network to evolve. This transformation involves a shift from Distribution Network Operators (DNO) to Distribution System Operators (DSO).

This transition holds immense potential, especially in optimising the utilisation of renewable electricity resources. It empowers better control and comprehension of supply and demand dynamics, …
