The DNO should highlight any material, known risks that could impact the Project’s costs and/or programmes.
Scale of project
Please justify the scale of the Project. In particular, the DNO should explain why there would be less potential for new learning
if the Project were a smaller scale.
Details of where the Trial(s) will take place. If the Project is a collaboration, the DNO area(a) in which the Trial(s) take place
should be identified.
Potential for new learning
Detail what the parties hope to learn and how the learning will be disseminated.
This should be between 5-8 to be eligible for Tier 1 Funds.
Predicted start and end dates.
DNOs should provide an estimate of the expected project starting and completion dates.

Project partners and external funders
Please give details of actual or potential Project Partners and External Funding Support as appropriate
Honeywell Building Solutions - Providing significant funding to prove that the proposed solution
can be successful UK wide. Honeywell will also be volunteering their head office building in
Bracknell for the trial free of charge.

General Electric (potential trial building)
Demand Response in the UK is, at present, a relatively unexplored area and the results of this
trial will show the feasibility of Honeywell's technology. This technology has not been
implemented anywhere in UK before making the learning applicable across the UK.
The platform will also be open standard so there will be the opportunity to include other
technologies at a later date if required. The success criteria labelled above also highlights new
learning in the ADR field in the UK. Specifically the commercial and incentive elements will benefit
any DNO wishing to implement this type of solution.
1 - The trial doesn't prove cost effective.
2 - Honeywell's DRAS cannot reduce/ shift peak loads within the pilot facilities
3 - Not meeting the proposed timeline and therefore not being able to take the learning from this
pilot into the NewTVV Tier 2 LCNF submission.
4 - Damage to 3rd party property during installation and running of the trial. All precautions
must be taken to eliminate/ minimise the risk to participants in the trial.
5 - Relationship with the energy supplier of the customers partaking in the trial.
6 - Potential for CI's/ CML's.
7 - Cyber security risks. We will assess & mitigate risks.
This project has been set up as a small scale trial (3-5 building) as it will give us the opportunity
to demonstrate that the DRAS can communicate and automatically shed peak load within several
buildings. It is also of a large enough scale to show aggregation of facilities.
A key element of this project is to highlight the required actions in order that this solution/
concept can be scaled up to manage real constraints on the HV/ LV network.
