Grid connections don’t come easy, and they don’t come cheap. Some locations are also suffering from high levels of congestion. This session will look at what an asset owner can do to maximise a grid connection once they have it and will consider:

  • Grid services you can provide – finding the right group of services for your project’s economics
  • Taking a wider look at a project and optimising assets
  • Finding the sweet spot between CAPEX and revenue
