Smart Local Energy Systems (SLES) are a varied and complex set of solutions using local assets to potentially provide resilience, network services, better consumer experiences and local network constraint management. They bring unique requirements and challenges to the specification, design, delivery, integration, and operation of SLES (or systems that will form SLES) in a rapidly changing energy sector.

This study defines typical SLES attributes and identifies those that could be considered as fundamental or critical to SLES and their success and identifies and analyses potential risks associated with SLES and their operation with or alongside other systems, both locally and nationally.
