Panel discussion – Driving energy transition and overcoming delays through grid stability and integration

Grid connection delays have been holding back £15 billions of investment in offshore wind alone over the course of this decade, at the very time when we need to boost energy security as quickly as possible and provide cheap power for consumers. Windfarms, solar arrays and battery projects are stuck in gridlock for up to 15 years as the UK’s electricity grid struggles to keep pace with the appetite for more clean energy – including a car factory being forced to wait until 2037. These delays threaten to undermine decades of work to attract the investment needed to support the UK’s clean energy ambitions.

  • Unlocking flexibility and ensuring network access with smart grid communication
  • How can private-public sectors partnerships accelerate the deployment of cables and smart grid infrastructure to support increased supply?
  • Advantages and disadvantages of converting existing transmission corridors to HVDCs
  • Investment opportunities, long term planning and delays: which projects will need to find alternative routes to market (hydrogen)? Is proactive queue jumping a temporary solution to delays?
  • Pan-European outlook: how to build partnerships across networks and identify upgrades and the innovative technologies required to achieve an interconnected European green grid
