On Wednesday 30 October, the regulator published a policy paper outlining its future priority work areas to deliver a more flexible electricity system. Flexibility is becoming an increasingly pressing issue with the advance of intermittent renewable generation capacity and its associated challenges for system balancing.
Ofgem outlined plans to ensure regulation promotes an efficient, flexible energy system by developing distribution system operators’ roles, clarifying the role of aggregators, supporting the use of battery storage and exploring the role of using large industrial and commercial customers to provide flexibility. Ofgem intends to progress this work in collaboration with DECC in the transition to a smarter energy system.
