Seminar: The role of networks in the transition to net-zero About the Event

The energy transition and the increased renewable deployment needed to meet our climate targets will require the current electricity and gas systems to evolve. A more integrated, increasingly electrified energy system will be essential.

The existing institutional arrangements in the UK energy system were not designed to meet the operability challenges of a low-carbon energy system. Ofgem will need to play an important role in making this transition and establishing the Future System Operator (FSO).

This seminar will cover the challenges of grid development to achieve the scale of electrification needed to support net-zero. It will also explore the key role of regulation on grid development and on facilitating renewable energy deployment.

You’ll learn:

  • How the Transmission Network Use of System (TNUoS) reform could unlock renewable deployment
  • How legislation could impose a legally binding net-zero duty on Ofgem and the impact that this could have on renewables
  • The role of the Future System Operator in whole system planning and network development and the opportunities this could present for industry

Who should attend?

Renewable energy developers and asset owners, financiers, public sector agencies, community groups and academics.
