The energy system is changing rapidly. We have seen a radical increase in the amount of renewable generation and a growth in smart technology and services that can enable more flexibility in how we use the networks. The rapid growth in renewable energy deployment marks the start of an anticipated revolution in the way in which we generate, store and use energy.

The grid charging regime has a key role to play in encouraging the most efficient use of the networks in a way that meets government’s long term objectives of decarbonising the power system and providing energy security.

Project duration: June to September 2016

This project considers what the principles of a charging regime that supports the transition to a smart system should be, in order to contribute to the current discussions under the flexibility agenda and shorter term proposals on embedded benefits.

The final report is available here.
