An event for local authorities and housing associations – Please join the Good Homes Alliance and expert Marc Wynn, Director of Asset Utilities Ltd for an interactive workshop on housing development and the electricity grid.

During the workshop we will explore topics such as electrical networks, distribution network operator (DNO) engagement, grid constraints, EV charging infrastructure and capacity requirements for heat pumps.

We will hear how the electricity network operates in order to provide an understanding of why there are grid connection issues and how excessive grid connection costs can derail EV and renewable energy projects.

Strategies and solutions will then be provided to solve these ‘issues’ in order for an authority to deliver its projects – EV, renewable or domestic developments.


  • An introduction to electrical networks
  • Testing for grid constraints and avoiding wasted time/expenditure
  • Engaging with distribution network operators (DNO)
  • EV charging infrastructure
