EFCC aims at developing and demonstrating a wide area monitoring and control scheme that is capable of deploying fast and coordinated frequency response using a variety of resources such as PV, energy storage, wind farms, demand side resources (DSR), and CCGTs. The successful implementation of this project is expected to enable faster response than existing schemes and lead to savings of £150m-£200m per annum by 2020.
