WEBINAR: Rethinking Electricity Markets for a Digital Energy Future

Published: 22 March 2021

Over the past 10 years since Electricity Market Reform was instigated, the UK power sector has been transformed, with renewables thriving and cheap and coal almost eliminated.

But evidence from Energy Systems Catapult’s whole system analysis shows that the current framework is now progressively undermining wholesale electricity markets and creating a perpetual reliance on government decision-making to drive technology choices.

A new report Rethinking Electricity Markets (launched on Wednesday 31 March) will set out proposals for a new wave of urgent reforms to push carbon emissions out of the electricity grid in a way that drives innovation and works for consumers.

You’re invited to a webinar to hear in-depth analysis on how Energy Systems Catapult is Rethinking Electricity Markets and take part in a Q&A about the merits of the proposed reforms.
