Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This work is produced as part of the Scottish Power Energy Networks (SPEN) Accelerating Renewable Connections (ARC) project which investigates different options to accelerate the connection of renewable DG capacity. The presentation outlines four architectures that are of interest for the implementation of Distributed Energy Schemes (DESs): (i) private wires, (ii) virtual private wires, (iii) demand aggregators, and (iv) local energy markets. The ARC project will provide the opportunity to deploy some of these architectures on the ground, and the presentation will discuss the learning about implications for various stakeholders.
