Generation Connections – East Lincolnshire

East Lincolnshire is rich in renewable energy, however generation connections large and small can be prohibitively expensive as this triggers traditional network reinforcement.

All additional generation now triggers 132kV (thermal) network reinforcement and often 33kV reinforcement (voltage rise).

Using innovative techniques WPD are demonstrating how they can unlock network capacity, allowing more generation connections without excessive traditional network reinforcement (often new overhead lines or underground cables)
