Around two-thirds of electricity generation is forecast to come from wind and solar power by 2035. At the same time, the expected growth in electric vehicles and electric heat pumps could result in peak demand doubling by 2045. 

Managing demand more flexibly could drastically reduce the investment in new generation storage and network infrastructure needed to maintain a reliable system, but this requires a revolution in how we use our energy. 

Join us on 29 July to explore approaches to flexibility and energy system digitalisation with a range of expert international speakers, part of our Green, Fair Future programme of events in the run-up to November’s COP26 climate change talks in Glasgow. 

We are determined not just to do everything we can to support a carbon-neutral future in the UK, but to use COP26 to accelerate greener, fairer energy globally through collaboration on learnings and best practice.
