2018 United Kingdom Executive Fact Finding Mission

Turbulence and Innovation

The United Kingdom is moving to a decarbonized energy sector and it isn’t shying away from experimentation to get there. From an innovative – and controversial – performance-based energy price scheme, to transactive energy projects, flexibility markets, and more, there’s a lot to learn.

This mission explores the powerful discoveries and course-corrections of the UK’s most recent energy experimentations. Attendees will receive practical lessons and new approaches to growing challenges.

Please note dates are subject to change.

What mission delegates will learn

  • Impacts of the Revenue = Incentives + Innovation + Outputs pricing model (RIIO) on DSOs and consumers
  • System reliability and balance with the world’s largest offshore wind capacity
  • Consumer pricing and engagement approaches with energy bills that have doubled in the last 10 years
  • The role of electric vehicles in the UK and its decarbonization goals
  • DERMS and control solutions in use
  • How the TSO took storage mainstream with their Enhanced Frequency Response tender

The Unique Fact Finding Mission Experience

Fact Finding Missions are in-the-field learning labs for utility and distributed energy executives. Mission participants go to energy markets around the world to learn from what others have done. At the conclusion of the mission, executives leave with lessons they can apply back home.
