Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) in Britain are incentivised to reduce network losses. However, the scope for DNOs to respond positively to this is limited by the nature of legacy assets, their configuration, interactions with other incentives and the cost-effectiveness of possible actions. This paper considers one example from an urban network. The difficulty of building a realistic and complete model of an area that has assets of varying ages and characteristics is discussed as is the effect of unevenly distributed growth of demand around a network. Finally, the possible effects of some measures for reduction of losses are presented.
