Northern Powergrid’s Customer-Led Network Revolution (CLNR) project is assessing the potential for new network technology and flexible customer response, to facilitate speedier and more economical take-up by customers of low-carbon technologies and the connection to the distribution network of increasing amounts of low carbon or renewable energy generation. The project is partially funded by Ofgem Low Carbon Networks Fund.

It includes six NEC Energy Solutions GSS units commissioned in 2013 in three different areas. The strategic siting, both rural and urban, represents different grid situations, and it is estimated that the placements offer a representative sample of 80% of the entire UK power grid.
