The Outlook for Gas: short-term evolution, long-term revolution?

An evolution in changing uses for gas, institutional reforms, technological change, and geopolitics are all driving gas demand and supply – globally, across Europe and here in the UK. But will these incremental developments usher in a future of radical changes and transformation?

Venue:Prince Philip House, 3 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5DG

Speaker(s):Anne-Sophie Corbeau BP, Chi Kong Chyong Cambridge University, Richard Howard Aurora Energy Research, Simon Durk National Grid

Conference Blog No. 8 Unlocking Local Energy Markets

Much of the growth in renewable generation in GB is taking place locally at the distribution network level. Distributed generation has doubled over the last 5 years and now represents over a quarter of total GB capacity. This growth in distributed generation has the potential to transform the current market structure of electricity trading and introduce new markets and services, as well as new market participants. One new innovative market model approach is the local energy market (LEM) approach. The concept of the LEM is to establish a marketplace which draws together a community of renewable energy and low carbon generators, storage and demand side response providers at both the domestic and non-domestic level. Through the marketplace these providers can then participate in energy trading; entering both traditional and new market services.


Conference Blog No. 7 Unlocking the benefits to end consumers

UK Government’s commitment to decarbonise the economy along with developments in disrupting and decentralised technology and business models is driving a great pace of change in the way electricity is produced and consumed. For consumers we see new services and business models emerging such as peer-to-peer energy trading, home energy storage, smart tariffs (Time-of-use tariffs), Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) services, and ‘energy as a service’ when energy is bundled with other services and even goods. We believe that common arrangements that enable access to and interoperability between central and local energy markets (new and existing) is the best way to maximise the benefits from these emerging opportunities for commercial and domestic consumers.
