The SAVE project will robustly trial and establish to what extent energy efficiency measures can be considered as a cost effective, predictable and sustainable tool for managing peak demand as an alternative to network reinforcement. The project will target domestic customers only, and the measures to be trialled will include deploying a technology, offering a commercial incentive and taking an innovative approach to engagement.

The project will be based in the Solent and surrounding area in the South of England, which is representative of much of the UK and where the Local Authorities are already creating challenges for the network as a result of implementing a strategy of supporting and encouraging local communities and businesses to develop opportunities and growth.
