Scenarios for the Development of Smart Grids in the UK

Smart Grids offer the potential to transform the ways we produce, deliver, consume and think about energy. This project, which is funded by the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC), aims to advance understanding of Smart Grid roll-out and use through a programme of novel empirical research, developing and evaluating a number of socio-technical scenarios. The project will use expert and public workshops and surveys to develop and evaluate a set of scenarios for the roll-out of smart grids across the UK.
