Developing flexibility: the new cornerstone of the grid.

Article 3: Challenges and opportunities posed by regulatory change: a spotlight on the UK

In the previous section, we described examples of how regulation could unlock private investment in a more flexible electricity system. We then compared and contrasted those examples with actual regulation in some west and north European countries today. In this section, we dive into the case of UK regulation in more detail, to discuss recent policy announcements and what is needed to tilt investment into a more flexible, future energy system. This section includes supporting commentary by one of this paper’s key sponsors, the UK’s Renewable Energy Association (REA).
