IET factfile: Future Power System Architecture 2 - Perspectives for Industrial Customers and Communities

The power system in Britain is undergoing a radical transformation. The Future Power System Architecture (FPSA) programme is taking a holistic and whole-system approach to the evolution of its architecture - considering technical, governance, commercial and societal factors.

FPSA is a multi-stakeholder collaboration led by the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Energy Systems Catapult, sponsored by Innovate UK. Updating the architecture of the power system will enable this group to take advantage of new opportunities that reduce their electricity costs through energy efficiency and active management of demand, generation and storage, and/or derive income from the provision of system services.
