Abstract Energy consultancy Baringa Partners were appointed to design and develop a software modelling tool to be used in the planning of cost-effective local energy systems. This software is called EnergyPath and will evolve to include a number of additional packages to inform planning, consumer insights and business metrics. Element Energy, Hitachi and University College London have worked with Baringa to develop the software with input from a range of local authorities, Western Power Distribution and Ramboll. EnergyPath will complement ETI’s national strategic energy system tool ESME which links heat, power, transport and the infrastructure that connects them. EnergyPath is a registered trade mark of the Energy Technologies Institute LLP.

This Deliverable comprises a report from Arup which was commissioned by the ESC to provide advice on the approach for Assessing Socio-Economic Benefits of the EnergyPath Networks Outputs. On balance, the method was found to be sound. There are questions which arise on some selected items but these do not undermine the whole.
