Increase Power System Flexibility to Enable More Renewables

Confidently operate your grid with increasing shares of variable renewable energy, distributed energy resources, and digitalized assets

Power system flexibility – or the ability of a power system to respond to changes in demand and supply – is an essential part of clean power systems. Flexibility measures are crucial for reliably and cost-effectively operating a power system with high shares of variable generation, like wind and solar. There are a variety of measures you can consider to increase the flexibility of your system.

This guide will help you

  • Understand the need for greater power system flexibility and the measures that can be used to increase it.
  • Understand the system operation time-scales over which flexibility matters and which approaches are best for each, including coupling with other sectors of the economy.
  • Choose the right flexibility measures for your power system and access resources that can help you get them implemented.
