Brief description and/or other information regarding the project: 
Our solution will provide a 20% increase in network capacity through a number of innovative measures. This will create customer benefits enabling more customers to make the transition to new generation and demand technologies. The project involves enhanced monitoring and analysis to precisely determine existing performance, and the deployment of novel technology for improved network operation - including flexible control and dynamic rating. To ensure representative and replicable outputs, the project involves three carefully selected trial areas across SP Distribution and SP Manweb, covering various network topology and customer demographics: St Andrews in Scotland, Wrexham in Wales and Whitchurch in England.
