Regen is working alongside National Grid ESO to address the challenge of how a net zero power system could operate during more challenging periods of the year. How will a very low carbon electricity system, with a very high proportion of variable renewable energy, significant new demand from EVs and heat pumps, and much greater levels of flexibility, remain flexible enough to deal with the diverse conditions that the British weather and energy system will throw at it?

Day In The Life Front CoverEarlier this year, we launched the first report illustrating how a 2035 net zero electricity system may operate on a challenging day in winter, with high demand and low availability of renewables. Our report looks at how we can continue to operate a secure system and manage low renewables through energy storage, flexible low carbon generation and interconnection.

Building on this, the second phase of the project has looked at the challenges and opportunities associated with a summer day. This means finding ways of keeping the system secure and stable when demand is low and availability of wind and solar is high. We have also drawn together the learning from both phases to highlight the important principles for successfully developing and designing a net zero electricity system.

This event will present the analysis and findings of the second phase of the work and draw out key conclusions from across the whole project. 

Following this launch webinar, we will be running a technical Q&A for those keen to dive even deeper into the detail behind the analysis. You can register in advance here.
