To minimise potential cost, disruption and carbon emissions, we need to develop smarter and more flexible ways of managing electricity networks. At Electricity North West we are leading a number of innovative projects, including the £9 million Customer Load Active System Services (CLASS) project funded by the Low Carbon Network Fund.

CLASS will trial an innovative approach to increase the capacity of the electricity network. It’s a low-cost solution which uses voltage control to manage electricity consumption at peak times, while still providing customers with the same great service.
