A dialogue with experts and key stakeholders from government, industry and academia on the potential of demand-side flexibility (DSF) to solve some of the key challenges of decarbonising electricity in China. The conversation will be centred around the presentation of research findings, lessons and policy recommendations, drawing upon international DSF experiences, with a focus on the pioneering role of the UK.
The event will look at:
• The potential of DSF to solve current challenges like the need for decarbonised sources of flexibility to integrate the growing share of renewables and to minimize the cost of ensuring security of supply and system stability.
• The leading role of the UK, and success stories and insights from other countries, including the potential role of China to develop DSF in domestic and global markets.
• Policy recommendations for unlocking the potential of DSF in China and implications for its 14th Five Year Plan.
• Perspectives from international aggregators, researchers, system operators and other experts.
This is the final dissemination event of the "Flexible Demand to Integrate Intermittent Renewables" project. An international cooperation UK/China project funded by the China Prosperity Fund of the Energy and Low Carbon Economy Program of the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO).
