Importance of flexibility and reliability in the UK energy market
Flexible power generation plays a key role in moving towards renewable energy sources. The UK has traditionally been heavily dependent on coal, but is now taking steps towards more sustainable alternatives. To speed up the transition towards renewables, the country needs to add flexible capacity in its power systems. Flexibility is critical to keeping the grid stable and balanced during peak times, dealing with intermittency from renewable energy sources or when renewable energy such as wind or solar is not available. Please watch our webinar recording to learn how the UK enhances flexibility in the energy market with the two new 50 MW Centrica power plants. These engine-based gas power plants bring the needed flexibility and reliability to the power systems. The webinar is co-hosted by Baringa, an independent business and technology consultancy.
