Integrated power & gas- Unlocking energy systems flexibility

Energy Flexibility Stage

UK energy companies need to balance the energy system between demand and supply, with increasing renewables providing challenges and opportunities. How can we establish a whole system approach to energy flexibility? Join this session to understand how gas and electricity are integrated today, and what role hydrogen can play in the future to provide flexibility in times of peak demand or at times of low or surplus renewables.
