Upgrading Our Energy System Smart Systems and Flexibility Plan July 2017

Upgrading Our Energy System Smart Systems and Flexibility Plan July 2017

In July the UK Government set out its plans for transitioning the energy system supported by the Government’s significant increase in public research and innovation spending as part of the Idustrial Strategy. The report sets out Government attitudes to new energy storage technologies, low carbon generation, much of it located close to people’s homes and businesses, and managing intermittency of supply taking into account factors like the time of day or the weather.

The report describes the creation of a smarter, more flexible energy system by:

- enabling smart homes and businesses;
- making markets work for flexibility; and
- removing barriers to smart technologies including storage
