Exclusive research report: Embracing Flexibility
The need for alternative and increased sources of flexibility in the power system is now widely accepted – but the UK’s journey to a flexible energy system has only just begun.
- How important is flexibility to energy businesses now and in the future?
- What contribution should grid scale storage and demand side flexibility make to this flexibility?
- What are the main drivers for flexibility, and what are the barriers?
- Is the regulatory and market framework fit for purpose
To answer these questions and more, Utility Week, in association with CGI, has held a series of high-level events and targeted market research, charting opinion year-on-year from the different players in the energy value chain: system operators, distribution network operators (DNOs), energy suppliers, energy traders, aggregators and the providers of flexibility.
Our latest report, the third in the series, shows that hands-on experience with flexibility projects is developing across the industry, as appetite continues to rise.
