NIE 11kV Network Heat Map

The main purpose of the network heat map is to provide guidance on the capability of the 11kV network to accept further small scale generation export.

NIE 11kV Network Heat Map

Since the introduction of the Northern Ireland Obligation Certificates (NIROCs) incentives for small scale generation, there has been a large increase in the amount of small scale generation either connected to, or committed to connect to, the 11kV network.

This increase in small scale generation is leading to increased 11kV connection costs and the requirement for 33kV reinforcement work to facilitate generation export from the 11kV network to the 33kV network.

The main purpose of the network heat map is to provide guidance on the capability of the 11kV network to accept further small scale generation export.
