Electricity Market Flexibility

Creating flexibility in electricity generation and consumption to create a resilient grid capable of meeting peak demand.

Meeting peak demand

Meeting peak demand in a cost-effective way is one of the core challenges of the UK’s electricity infrastructure. Whilst renewable technologies are making an important contribution, some are weather dependent, and it is important that during the times of highest demand and lowest supply we can apply flexibility to make sure the UK’s energy needs are still met.

What Changes Can We Expect?

Changes to generation and consumer technology, combined with a need for a balanced grid is seeing innovative new ways of ensuring supply matches demand, whilst keeping energy costs low for customers.

Here's just a few of the innovations which our electricity infrastructure will have to cater for over the coming years.
