Description

Written evidence submitted by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in collaboration with the Energy Systems Catapult to the National Infrastructure Commission’s Call for Evidence on Energy.


Abstract

The IET’s response to the National Infrastructure Commission’s Call for Evidence on Energy was done in collaboration with the Energy Systems Catapult (ESC) due to combined work of the IET and ESC on the Future Power System Architecture (FPSA) which is referenced throughout this submission.

The responses provides a high level summary on how the National Infrastructure Commission can facilitate investment in energy infrastructure and answers the numerous questions cited in the National Infrastructure Commission’s Call for Evidence for Energy. Within the answers an emphasis is put on encouraging flexibility services on the electricity network, wide adoption of time of use tariffs to achieve such flexibility, the impact of imbalance prices, and a detailed overview on the flexibility potential of demand side management and embedded generation, as well as the value and barriers to energy storage capacity.
