Future Power System Architecture - Synthesis Report

IET factfile: Future Power System Architecture 2 - Synthesis Report

The power system in Britain is undergoing 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 (IET) and Energy Systems Catapult, sponsored by Innovate UK.

The work of the FPSA programme to date has highlighted the importance of acting now to ensure that Britain’s power system can adapt to address the complex and uncertain demands that will be placed on it in the period to 2030 and beyond. These demands were identified and documented in the Power Network Joint Vision work that preceded FPSA
