Abstract This project will develop energy system modelling capability to increase understanding of the role of energy storage and system flexibility in the future energy system. The modelling capability will provide a whole systems view of the different services that could be provided and at which points in the energy system they are most appropriate. Management consultancy Baringa Partners are delivering this new project to develop the capability to improve understanding with regards the future role of energy storage and the provision of cross-vector system flexibility within the context of the overall UK energy system.
  • Energy balancing is critical and extends beyond the electricity system
  • Numerous opportunities to achieve balancing include:
    • Energy storage
    • Demand side flexibility
    • Vector integration
  • Key decisions that lead to new energy systems will affect how much and what type of flexibility is needed.
  • There is a huge amount of potential that we do not currently understand about balancing within a whole energy system.
  • It is possible to assess the requirements for future flexibility - tools and evidence are being developed to help with this.
