Overview

The Distribution Future Energy Scenarios outline the range of credible futures for the growth of the distribution network. Distribution Future Energy Scenarios aggregated to an Local Authority level represent all customers connected to the WPD network within the geographic area of a Local Authority. As a result, this includes customers connected at all voltage levels.

DFES Profiles

Half hourly profiles for each technology used in the DFES analysis. Provided are both the unabated and flexed profiles, the latter of which accounts for customers that have engaged to flex their demand at times of system peak.

.CSV

DFES Profile Splits

For each year, the proportion of customers projected to be following either the flexed or unabated profile.

.CSV

DFES Energy Projections

Annual energy consumption and generation for each Local Authority under each DFES Scenario, detailing the percentage of demand met by renewable distributed generation. This data can also be viewed on our DFES map.

.CSV

DFES Power Projections

Season, time and power (MW) of annual peak demand for each year, ESA and scenario. This data can also be viewed on our DFES map.

.CSV

DFES Annual Scaling Data

Scaling factors applied to the profiles to account for energy efficiency and changes in technology use over time.
