Electricity markets are transitioning from highly centralised systems dominated by large units of generation and a small number of large suppliers, to a more de-centralised, distributed system. Generation assets, particularly renewable sources of electricity, are increasingly connecting at the distribution level, alongside new and potentially disruptive technologies such as electric vehicles and storage.
At the same time, the market frameworks that drive asset economics are changing. New income streams are opening up, while regulatory change is reforming the way in which users pay for electricity infrastructure.
I help investors and operators to develop robust, future-proof business models for distributed energy resources including renewable generation, storage and demand-side response.
