Views invited on barriers to demand-side flexibility in the GB energy sector

CEPA and the Energy Systems Catapult (ESC) have been appointed by BEIS to carry out a study on energy price signals, as part of BEIS’s Alternative Energy Markets (AEM) programme. The AEM is currently exploring what an alternative system of network and policy price signals to better enable cost-effective decarbonisation might look like. Subsequently, it will explore whether those signals could be trialled in a real-world environment, and how to undertake any potential trial.

We are now inviting interested parties to complete a short survey to offer their views on the current barriers to demand-side flexibility in the Great Britain energy sector. Responses to the survey will help shape the initial stages of CEPA and ESC’s study.

The survey can be found here and takes less than 10 minutes to complete. Stakeholders are encouraged to respond to the survey by 18 July.

CEPA is an economics, finance, regulation and competition advisory firm with extensive experience in developing, implementing and evaluating public policy issues in the energy sectors in the UK, Ireland and internationally.

ESC is an independent, not-for-profit centre of excellence that bridges the gap between industry, government, academia and research.
