Why Choose Us For Your Distributed Generation Project?



Our knowledge of electricity distribution networks and the regulatory framework enables us to quickly assess a scheme and identify the most expedient way to develop the utility connection strategy in the safest and most cost-effective way.

What is Distributed Generation?

Distributed generation (DG) is also known as embedded generation. Distributed Generation is electricity generating plant that is connected to a distribution network rather than the transmission network. UES are committed to protecting the environment and recognise the role that renewable energy generation can have in helping organisations and individuals to combat climate change and prepare for a low carbon future.

We represent a number of clients covering a broad range of disciplines and will assist through all stages of the distribution network connection process. From project inception to final commissioning for generation sites including windfarms, coal bed methane plants, solar (photo-voltaics), biomass, hydro electric power, combined heat and power (CHP) and battery technologies.

We ensure design optimisation by modelling distribution networks using industry software, checking for likely impacts such as fault level capability and load flow implications on client, IDNO and DNO HV/LV networks.

To keep it simple...

• We carry out connection feasibility studies with reference to DNO long-term development statements, thus providing a timely and yet informative report. The feasibility stage includes projected cost proposals and indicative timescales.

• Make the formal application for connection to the distribution network by completing the applications process, with reference to the requirements of the Distribution and Grid Codes, G59 and DNO policies.

• Assess DNO proposals from technical and commercial perspectives and check compliance with regulatory obligations and published charging statements. We aim to negate the need for unnecessary reinforcement apportionment wherever possible, having successfully challenged a number of DNOs.

• We can design and construct contestable and private network assets for any type of generation project, having successfully completed a number of projects, including wind farms, landfill and anaerobic digestion plants.
