The introduction of distributed generation (DG) is leading to a fundamental change in how distribution networks are utilized and viewed. Distribution networks are now used as a means to connect geographically dispersed energy sources to the electricity system, thereby converting what were originally energy delivery networks, to networks used both for the delivery and harvesting of energy. This paper presents a methodology which maximizes the amount of energy that may be reaped from a given area, while taking account of the available energy resources, connection costs, losses, frequency of constraint breaches, and other technical constraints. The optimal energy allocation is determined for a sample section of network, illustrating the implementation of the methodology and the scope for non firm access to the distribution network
