IET factfile: Future Power System Architecture 2 - Work Package 2 - Functional Analysis

This report presents the outcomes of Work Package (WP2) of the FPSA2 project. This work has been undertaken by TNEI Services (TNEI), Element Energy and Kuungana Advisory.

The GB power system architecture i.e. the underlying structure of the power system and how its components and participants interact, must undergo transformative change towards 2030 to accommodate advanced technologies, new business models, major policy changes and various other challenges presented in the effort to meet the objectives of the energy trilemma: decarbonisation, security of supply and affordability.

This has led to a whole system approach being required such that the changes to the physical network, market structures, regulatory and commercial codes and customer behaviour can be addressed in an integrated manner
