Registered power zone

Registered power zone

A registered power zone is an area of the national grid network, geographical or electrical, specifically designated for the research, development and demonstration (R,D&D) of new technologies concerning the power network. Specifically to develop solutions to the problems associated with connecting generating capacity at the distribution network level. There are currently 3 registered power zones in the UK, operated by different Distribution Network Operators.

1. Skegness and Fenz. Operated by central networks2. Island of Orkney. Operated by Scottish Hydro electric3. Marsham primary. Operated by EDF Energy

The scheme has been successful in initializing development of tools, software and devices to facilitate the connection of distribute/embedded generation. This is essential to the growth of renewable usage in the UK. It is hoped that the most successful outputs of the RPZ schemes can be rolled out nationwide after 2010.
