    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.
