Abstract This whole system integration project aims to decarbonise the GD operation and reduce cost, with a benefit to the energy consumers in the way of reduced tariffs. We aim to investigate if the power generated from excess gas can be fed back into the grid or stored, improving the coordination between the gas and electric network, and assessing the cost of potential energy demand reduction activities. To design for scalability and harness value from data across organisations, we will determine the digital systems architecture to improve data collection, quality, interoperability and shareability.We are evaluating the introduction of a new product and service that has been proven in the oil and gas sector but is new to the UK energy market. The main users will be GD and transmission businesses. The project entails evaluation of novel approaches to infrastructure investment by taking a systemsview across generation and demand side, determining new financial viability for infrastructure expansion and modernisation.
