SP Energy Networks

We are SP Energy Networks. As a Distribution and Transmission Network Operator we keep electricity flowing to homes and businesses throughout Central and Southern Scotland, North Wales, Merseyside, Cheshire and North Shropshire.

We do this through the network of Overhead Lines and Underground Cables which we own and maintain. No matter who you pay your bill to, we’re the people to contact if you have a power cut, need a new or upgraded power connection or spot an issue with our equipment.

Our three regulated electricity businesses are:

  • SP Transmission PLC (SPT)

  • SP Distribution PLC (SPD)

  • SP Manweb PLC (SPM)

The Charge Project, by PTV Group

The Charge project will examine the best way to facilitate the increase in demand on the electricity network through the growth in uptake of electric vehicles (EV’s). It will directly address a key priority for the electricity network stakeholders: “what will be the impact of Electric Vehicles on the network?” by developing cost effective management and smart network solutions to enable and facilitate the transition to electrified transportation.

The role of PTV will be to deploy a transport model in integration with an electricity network model to help the electricity Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) in the UK identify optimal EV charging locations that can be installed where and when they are needed. The consortium led by SPEN will fulfil their obligation to the UK regulator Ofgem by publishing the outcomes of the research and development – making available their findings to the other UK DNO’s and stakeholders.
