Energy-Assets - Electricity Network Ownership Service
From Electricity Services
As an Ofgem-approved Independent Distribution Network Operator, Energy Assets Networks partners with house builders, developers, major construction companies and Independent Connection Providers to optimise the value of local energy networks.
We work closely with house builders, developers, major construction companies and Utility Infrastructure Providers. As an IDNO we are able to adopt any network, from 132kV to LV, across the UK distribution network.
Our expertise will become increasingly important over the coming years as the drive the Net Zero ramps up electrification in all areas of life, including domestic heating and EV charging.
We have built a portfolio comprising thousands of domestic connection points, but one of our key success factors is our flexible approach to asset types, which includes adoption of future-focused assets such as EV charging infrastructure.
Through this flexibility, we are able to provide competitive Asset Value quotations while supporting our customers using electricity network design, engineering and commissioning expertise.
Our service also includes an in-house legal team to manage the land rights process and in many cases the need to employ external lawyers. By doing this work, we aim to reduce waiting times, reduce legal spend for our customers and increase efficiency.
We manage many thousands of ‘final mile’ electricity connection points for residential housing schemes and industrial and commercial developments. Our primary role is to maintain high quality networks and ensure electricity is safely provided to all our customers.
We are involved in a pilot project that aims to show how artificial intelligence (AI) can be used to prevent local power networks being overloaded during the projected rapid rise in demand for electricity.
Project DINO (Domestic Infrastructure and Network Optimisation) is a partnership between Evergreen Smart Power, Energy Assets Networks and Myenergi and aims to demonstrate in a newbuild residential setting how AI can safeguard network integrity through two-way communication with household appliances. It is the first project of its type in the UK.
“There is growing realisation that local power networks may not be able to cope with the huge increase in demand for electricity as we transition to electric vehicles, battery storage/charging and air source heat pumps alongside traditional household appliances,” says Jayson Whitaker, Managing Director of Energy Assets Networks.
“The DINO project aims to demonstrate how a network-to-device AI interface can manage loads dynamically by enabling appliances to automatically dial down consumption at peak times to relieve network stress and safeguard power to homes. Without such a solution, the country would need to invest in a hugely costly network reinforcement programme to increase capacity.”
