Push For Smart Grid Projects In UK’s North West

Schneider Electric, a German engineering firm launched the project in support of the increasing growth and integration of renewable energy in North Western UK. The implementation of smart grids in the UK could be crucial in helping them meet the European objective of becoming a low carbon economy by 2050.

The new smart grid will manage energy efficiency by monitoring and providing an instant response to local power demands. This automated network will also be able to detect and resolve power outages, such as the redirection of electricity during outages to ensure that most households continue to receive power.

The project is part of a series of smart grid projects across the UK as more households are expected to have solar panels installed. It is estimated to take 3 years to implement, and will span 2.4 million households served by the utility Electricity North West.
