As the electricity System Operator, National Grid’s role is to balance supply and demand on a second by second basis. The system we are operating is in the midst of significant change, in particular on the supply side.
The growth of renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar is increasing, just as fossil fuel generation is decreasing. Whilst this presents a challenge to National Grid, it also presents a great opportunity to industrial & commercial customers.
National Grid’s Power Responsive seeks to facilitate and shape the growth of demand side flexibility collaboratively with stakeholders from across the industry.
