This special report, based on an exclusive survey on the value of a flexible power system, reveals the need for a step-change in delivering energy flexibility.
The UK needs a more flexible power system. This view is fast becoming the prevailing orthodoxy, with the National Infrastructure Commission report, Smart Power, recently suggesting that enhanced flexibility could save consumers as much as £8 billion a year by 2030.
But how can it be achieved?
CGI has teamed up with Utility Week, the leading media for the water, gas and electricity industries, by commissioning this unique survey into the value of energy flexibility.
While industry respondents are clear on the strategic significance flexibility will play to the power system by 2030, they highlight a range of ongoing practical and policy-based barriers to its achievement.
