Electricity system: modelling capability

Report looking at the emerging challenges for modelling the electricity system in Great Britain.


Modelling requirements for GB power system resilience during the transition to low carbon energy


This report assesses the modelling capability required to ensure that Britain continues to have a secure, resilient and efficient electricity system. It considers how our capabilities would need to be adapted to assess resilience as we make the transition to a low carbon economy.

The report was commissioned by the Council for Science and Technology (CST) from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).
