The Lincolnshire Low Carbon Hub (LCH), one of WPD’s largest Low Carbon Network Fund projects, has now reached its conclusion.

LCH, which has been based in East Lincolnshire since 2011, was designed to test various innovative techniques to accommodate significant low carbon generation onto the electricity network without conventional reinforcement.

Lincolnshire is suitable for a range of renewable generation including wind farms and large scale solar Photo Voltaic (PV), but many generators could not connect because of the effect that a connection could have on voltage fluctuations and impedance, which impacts on network operation.
