Abstract

This paper discusses various issues associated with the development and operation of networks to facilitate and transfer energy derived from low carbon sources such as renewables, nuclear power and burning of fossil fuels with carbon capture and storage. It starts by briefly describing the limitations of present day networks before moving on to discuss the likely features of a network for low carbon energy and how it should be developed and operated, the facilitation of new connections to the network, the roles of the network licensees, the key technologies and the support of innovation and, before drawing some overall conclusions, some lessons that can be learned from other countries
