Abstract The objective of the Distributed Energy (DE) Programme is to increase the uptake of DE through the development of integrated systems in order to reduce through-life costs, improve ease of installation and increase efficiency in the combined generation of heat and electricity. Within this programme framework the objective of the Macro DE FRP will develop and validate a software methodology to enable the design of optimised DE solutions where clusters of demand sites are linked with appropriate DE supply equipment. The project will quantify the opportunity for Macro level DE (up to 50MW) in the UK and the potential to accelerate the development of appropriate technology by 2020 for the purposes of significant implementation by 2030

Subsequent to this report it was agreed to purchase CreditSafe’s registered company database due to its better overall accuracy of key indicator data for the tertiary sector.

Having developed and validated a method for forecasting energy demand, the next steps within this particular work package are
  1. To develop an approach for creating around 20 UK “Characteristic Zones” to calculate aggregated zonal demand.
  2. Develop an approach for assessing large UK waste heat emitters
In addition with a separate work package (WP4) the consortium will develop a design/optimisation methodology to aggregate zonal energy demand data and design/optimise zonal DE centre’s using the temporal demand profiles from this deliverable together with a library of DE technology/equipment (WP3). This design/optimisation methodology will be embedded in a pre-prototype software too
