Staying Flexible: Balancing the Grid & Generating Demand-Response Systems

29 Nov 2023
Inspire Stage (Hall 7.3)
Session: Strategies for Enabling Flexibility

For utilities, renewable operators, and the upstream community, building a deep understanding of the intricacies of the grid is essential to facilitate the energy transition. Both the volumes and timing of power grid utilisation is changing – utilities must be ready to balance load and handle peak shaving and renewable operators must orient their place in the grid to maximise ROI. Curating demand-response systems is critical to maximising grid efficiency, but understanding how to build such systems and deliver real value can be opaque.

Hear about the implementation, findings and best-practices from National Grid’s recent large-scale demand-response trial, conducted in the UK. We will cover the role your business should play in an efficient, demand-sensitive grid of the future, to maximise sustainable growth and enhance your long-term strategic planning; Pathways to building a collaborative demand-response system, and the importance of considering the full value chain, to give you actionable, ready-to-deploy insights; And How to keep your customer at the centre of your decision-making, and their evolving role on the grid, to refresh your customer relations strategy
