    Abstract

    The C2C project explores a novel means of providing greater capacity from existing distribution assets. The Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, at the University of Manchester, has participated in this OfGEM Low Carbon Network Fund project to assess its carbon impact, identifying and quantifying the major sources of emissions and areas where C2C can provide savings and where it may increase emissions. The C2C solution has multiple consequences in terms of assets, operation of the network and facilitation of new connections that are different to the existing practices of Electricity North West. As well as developing and demonstrating a novel approach to carbon assessment that may be replicated by other distribution network projects, the C2C Carbon Impact Assessment has identified a number of findings relevant to both ENW, and the engineering and academic communities developing smart grids and low carbon energy policy. This report summarises this research with further detail contained in the other C2C carbon impact reports.
