SSE

1MW Battery, Shetland (SSET1001)

This project involves installing a 1MWe connected battery at the Lerwick Power Station on Shetland. The project will investigate using the use of a battery with local demand-side response to manage local network constraints.

Demonstrating the benefits of monitoring LV network with embedded photo-voltaic (PV) panels and electric vehicle (EV) charging points (SSET1002)

This project will trial several 11kV/ low voltage (LV) substation monitoring devices to obtain directional energy usage data over a period of 12 months. The project will also trial installing monitoring equipment whilst avoiding customer interruptions.

Trial Evaluation of Domestic Demand Management Solutions (DDMS) (SSET1003)

This Project will trial a small number of DDMSs in the Shetlands. This project will test the use of DDMSs ahead of larger roll out in the Northern Isles New Energy Solutions (NINES) project.

Demonstrating the Functionality of Automated Demand Response ADR (SSET1004)

This project will demonstrate the use of Honeywell Building Solutions' Automated Demand Response (ADR) technology to reduce load on the network at time of peak demand. This technology has been proven on networks elsewhere in the world. If successful this technology will be trialled on a larger scale by the New Thames Valley Vision project.

Low Voltage (LV) Network Modelling and Analysis Environment (SSET1005)

This Tier 1 project will identify, test, demonstrate and evaluate a low carbon network modelling environment for a selected small sub-set of HV/LV network in the UK. This learning will be used to inform the New Thames Valley Vision project.

Orkney Energy Storage Park (SSET1007)

This Project will create the commercial contracts necessary to incentivise the third party energy storage providers (ESPs), prepare a tender process that will select the most suitable third party ESP, design the installation for up to two Energy Storage Systems outside Kirkwall Power Station and select the two most suitable ESPs that fulfil the success criteria. If two suitable ESPs are selected, then a follow on Tier 1 Project will be registered that will construct the connection points and trial the commercial arrangements.

Low Voltage (LV) Network Connected Energy Storage (SSET1008)

This project seeks to understand the potential benefits, practicalities and costs of installing electrical energy storage (EES) connected via four quadrant power conversion systems (PCS) on the LV network. The main objective is to inform and de-risk the larger scale deployment of street batteries as detailed in the NTVV Tier 2 project.

Trial of Orkney Energy Storage Park (SSET1009)

This project follows on from Orkney Energy Storage Park (SSET1007). It will use the energy storage providers (ESP) identified in the previous project to use the Energy Storage System to absorb excess renewable energy that would otherwise be constrained. It will also allow the ESP to run their system commercially with the emphasis placed on them to increase their income by targeting other revenue streams, i.e. STOR, arbitrage etc. At the end of the project the various markets accessed by the ESP will be shared with SSEPD in order to generate the required learning.
