BEAMA HAS PUBLISHED FLEXIBILITY BY DESIGN, THE FIFTH REPORT IN THE ELECTRIFICATION BY DESIGN SERIES
26 July 2018
Today BEAMA has published Flexibilty by Design, the fifth report in the Electrification by Design series.
In December 2017 BEAMA published a report, Electrification by Design, exploring policy and market mechanisms to promote deployment of low-carbon electric systems. In it we identified critical enablers of a flexible and efficient low-carbon energy system. These include consumer engagement with energy use, targeted automation of energy management in buildings, and demand-side energy management. In the report we identified some of the challenges facing the market for smart products and made some recommendations for how to enable and maintain this market and maximise benefits to the consumer and to the network.
We also made recommendations for how government, industry, consumers and other stakeholders can work together to enable and maintain the market for smart products and maximise their benefits to the consumer and to the electricity transmission and distribution networks.
This report provides more context to BEAMA’s view of how the market can identify and allocate the value of flexibility fairly, transparently and efficiently to support the decarbonisation of the energy system.
