‘More with less’ is a modern mantra across much of life. Grid is no exception. To provide consumers with value for money, and generators with quick and efficient connections, networks companies are providing ‘flexible’ connections. However, these special arrangements invariably result in generators taking additional risk on network unavailability (due to network overloading and constraint management).
Xero Energy has a long and strong reference list of quantifying grid constraints and curtailment and thus the impact on revenue streams. Our clients have used these reports to understand project risk to aid development decisions and/or secure project investment.
Over 5,000MW of grid related constraints quantified for developers, financiers and owners.
