Flexible Power Zone


Flexible Power Zone National Grid

Demand Flexibility | DSR | Battery Storage | Security of Supply

This theatre is designed to provide an opportunity for those looking to broaden their understanding of DSR and flexibility opportunities to meet with the experts in the field.  A dozen participating DSR and Battery Storage partners of National Grid will each give a presentation (schedule below) and be available to talk with you one on one. It’s your opportunity to find a supplier that talks your language and makes sense for your business.

Businesses of all shapes and sizes can make money, reduce their bills and cut their carbon footprint by getting involved in demand-side flexibility.

This fast-growing market is all about using energy more intelligently. It provides flexibility that enables National Grid to balance Britain’s electricity system cost-effectively, while our energy landscape changes rapidly. If your business has the flexibility to increase, decrease, or shift its electricity use, then the power is in your hands to take full advantage.
