The Smart Systems and Flexibility Plan, developed by the government and Ofgem in coordination with the energy sector, sets out a vision, analysis and suite of policies to drive a net zero energy system. Smart technologies and flexibility are essential to integrating low carbon power, heat and transport onto the system.
The Plan has 4 key areas of focus:
support flexibility from consumers
remove barriers to flexibility on the grid
reform markets to reward flexibility
monitor flexibility across the system
See the related Energy Digitalisation Strategy which aims to spur innovation and competition, facilitate new consumer offers, and reduce the cost of decarbonising the energy system.
