Government must act urgently on power system flexibility to avoid costs escalating

Researchers based at the UK Energy Research Centre will today warn of the need to build much greater flexibility into the power system, if we are to ensure energy security and avoid spiralling costs.

The researchers will today publish an update of a 2006 systematic review of the costs and impacts of adding ‘intermittent’ electricity, such as wind and solar, into the electricity system, which finds very strong evidence that, without flexibility, costs will be much higher than they need to be.
