  3. Energy UK - who do we speak for? • Energy

    trade association • Over 100 members • Whole of the market (downstream) Membership: • delivers 80% of UK’s power generation • over 95% of energy supply (28 million UK homes and many businesses) • includes service providers across energy, transport, heat and technology.
  4. Why? ii) Optimise renewable output so surplus creates value (not

    cost) Chart from LCP Generation mix 2022 - 31% wind and solar. Gas 34%
  5. Contribution of domestic flex now – nascent Local flex markets

    . • DNOs (congestion) • Contracted volumes grown from 116MW in 2018 to 2.4GW in 2023 • But lack of standardization = friction & procurement shortfall • LCP’s 2022 Market Monitor for Demand Side Capacity Market 2022/23 T-1 Auction • 45% - Gas • 7% DSR - 404MW 2022/23 T-4 Auction • 68% of Gas - 29.0GW • 2% DSR - 925MW (source Ofgem CM report 2023) Balancing Mechanism BM) • ~70% gas (ESO Markets Roadmap 2023) • Control room processes (part manual) and IT can’t manage small-scale assets in aggregated portfolios • ESO’s Open Balancing Platform - capability to dispatch multiple providers • Metering standards – ESO requires metering accurate to 1%. • ESO trial relaxed metering standards - EV role in system balancing.
  6. Case study – Demand Flexibility Service • Gas crisis -

    winter 2022/3, the ESO developed a package of winter contingency options (coal contracts, and DFS) • The award-winning service was a nationwide trial of a demand reduction service, enabling domestic consumers, industrial and commercial users to be incentivised for shifting demand to avoid the peak 10
  7. Case study – DFS • 2023/4 – the ESO expects

    to run 12 test events between November 2023 and March 2024. • First 6 tests at £3,000/MWh• Initial indication 2-3GW • Is DFS expensive? Compared to BAU balanced - Yes Compared to 2022/3 coal contracts - No 11
