Market Intelligence

We publish quarterly reports which take an analytical and strategic view of industry trends and topics like renewable generation, electric vehicle uptake, energy storage and heating decarbonisation.

Published reports

The findings presented in each report provide us and our industry collaborators a holistic view of the current landscape. Quarterly updates allow us to actively monitor current trends and maintain an up-to-date, empirically based view of the future. With a clear picture of the immediate and future implications of the latest developments in our industry, we can take decisive action as appropriate to help us fulfill our vision of being the best-performing DNO and unlock benefits for our customers. You can give us feedback on our report by filling in our online survey.

Facilitating the future

Produced by our in-house Business Planning team, the reports present a range of empirical insights and industry developments that help to inform UK Power Networks’ strategic decision-making. Our strategic approach to network planning is heavily influenced by our assessment of trends in electrical storage, distributed generation, electric vehicles, and electrified heating installations connecting to our networks.
