Low carbon electricity's share of generation increased from Are there any government policies, targets or incentives in place to encourage the use of renewable or low carbon energy? The RO has until recently been the main financial mechanism supporting the uptake of large-scale renewable electricity generation projects in the UK.
This Smart Meter Strategy Paper supersedes three papers which formed part of our business plan submission in July Our previous strategy paper and two cost justification papers have been consolidated into this single strategy paper.
We have reassessed our costs forecasts following development of our procedures which will allow most remedial work to be carried out live, and further design work on the interfaces between our IT.
What we plan to do: In summary we expect to spend This expenditure is made up of In addition to savings accruing to suppliers and customers, in our role as a network operator we anticipate deriving almost 50m of indirect benefits from this investment where actions by suppliers and customers reduce the peak demand for electricity.
This expenditure involves The Contents and Introduction sections on the next few pages give more details and explain where each element of our strategy is described.
Improve Safety further Deliver better Customer Service Promoting Social Obligations Providing quicker Connections and a better service Maintaining network Reliability and reducing interruptions Taking care of our Environment Being more Efficient Developing Innovative solutions Meeting Stakeholder expectations Develop new processes to exploit data from smart meters; more information about network management and performance.
Utilise information regarding unplanned supply interruptions at LV network level to improve supply restoration and voltage complaint performance.
Use smart meters to help deliver an enhanced service for vulnerable customers during unplanned supply interruptions. Use smart metering data to develop LV load indices enabling more informed new connections choices whilst enabling flexible connection of LCT derived load.
A better understanding of changes to network loading will ensure that network capacity is not exceeded. Use information from smart meters to assist in supply restoration process. Use smart metering data to develop LV load indices enabling better informed network reinforcement decisions resulting in fewer excavations.
Use data from smart meters to assist with many aspects of LV network operation and management including: Use data from smart meters to enhance all aspects of LV network management ensuring that data from smart meters acts as a catalyst for the development of smarter grids.
Work with suppliers and other industry stakeholders to provide support during the smart meter roll-out programme.

The Government has established a Smart Metering Implementation Programme SMIP to co-ordinate delivery of the programme, including the development of the commercial and regulatory framework.SP Energy Networks (SPEN) is part of the Scottish Power Group of companies and is regulated by The Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem).

National Grid owns the transmission assets in England and Wales; Scottish Power Transmission Limited (SPTL) owns • The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), formed in with the merger of the Department of Energy The RIIO-ED1 (the first price control for electricity distribution) has been set.
In RIIO-GD1 (–21), the regulator decided not to fast-track any of the gas distribution networks. 5 In RIIO-T1 (–21), two companies were fast-tracked (Scottish Power Transmission Limited and Scottish Hydro Electric Transmission plc), and benefited from a higher incentive rate than the slow-tracked companies.
