Innovations in how electricity is generated and supplied are required to support transformation of energy systems in response to climate change. We describe a MIP model to support grid upgrade decisions in the context of an energy community in an existing urban setting. We evaluate the MIP model on an adaption of an IEEE radial network benchmark instance augmented with geographic data. We present interesting computational results which suggest additional arcs to be added. Our results highlight potential research opportunities for the network optimisation community to facilitate the desired energy systems transformation challenge.
