The Resilience as a Service – RaaS – innovation project seeks to improve the operational resilience of electricity distribution networks in remote areas.
The aim is to develop and trial a new market-based solution which uses services provided by a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) together with local Distributed Energy Resources (DER) to swiftly, automatically, restore power to customers in the event of a fault.
The RaaS concept would deliver low carbon, cost effective network resilience to improve security of supply for communities in areas susceptible to power outages, supporting the UK’s transition to Net Zero.
