WHITE PAPER: MICROGRID AS A SERVICE

A Local, Place Based Solution that Enables New Housing Development in an All-electric Era

Electrifying heat and our cars presents a significant technical and commercial challenge for housing developers when seeking a new grid connection. Indeed, all-electric developments can today expect grid connections costs to be triple that of a dual-fuel home and potentially take up to 10 years to be available from the DNO.

This challenge threatens the ability of the housing market to deliver the 300,000+ homes the UK needs every year, placing additional upward pressure on house prices.

To deliver on net-zero by 2050 and minimise the cost to developers, residents and the energy system at large will require a diverse range of technology and business model solutions.

Funded SmartGrids, otherwise known as Microgrid as a Service (MaaS) is one such solution. SNRG commissioned LCP Delta (FKA Delta-ee) to write a white paper on the potential for Microgrid as a Service to solve these challenges while generating benefits for developers, residents and network operators. The white paper includes sections covering:

  • So what is the problem?
  • What is an energy community?
  • Private versus public networks
  • Physical energy communities
  • What is Microgrid as a Service (MaaS)?
  • Challenges and opportunities
  • What next for MaaS and energy communities?

Uncover the Key to Delivering Sustainable Growth with Funded SmartGrids.
