Case study overview

National Grid’s Connections teams leverage Sensat’s visualisation platform to support virtual siting studies and option selection for substation upgrades.

Communicating technical information to non-technical stakeholders can be a challenge. Previously, communicating information has relied on lengthy back-and forth meetings to convey constraints.

During the early-stage public consultation process on this project, the local planning authority (LPA) questioned the proposed substation’s placement, perceiving it as a biassed decision.

Learn how National Grid used Sensat as a backdrop for conversations with the local planning authority to make them project allies.
