Key documents

The learnings from this project will be of immense value to the industry, both locally and internationally, as energy systems seek to decarbonise and decentralise.

The dissemination of these learnings is a key requirement of Ofgem and this page is dedicated to sharing the project's work and findings.

Here, you’ll find our latest publications as well as an indexed archive of previous reports and documents. These include events, webinar slides, case studies, viability assessments and progress reports.
