Electricity systems are getting more complex in light of the rapid expansion of renewables. New sources of flexibility are needed to ensure supply and demand can be balanced in real-time, and the systems can be operated safely and reliably. The potential is enormous with the increasing uptake of distributed generation and storage, and the roll-out of electric vehicles and electrical heat devices.
Traditional sources of flexibility, such as large scale dispatchable fossil fuel plants, are decommissioned, and the market is increasingly looking for flexibility at a smaller scale to solve the problem. The potential is enormous with the increasing uptake of distribution connection generation and storage, and the roll-out of electric vehicles and electrical heat devices. At the same time, customers are engaging as they never have before, motivated by reducing their carbon footprint and an increasing interest in localism.
