In the future the sector could have a greater variety of energy sources and generation technologies and a higher proportion of variable sources. This evolution will require new approaches to development, energy dispatch and demand planning, operation and maintenance of transmission and distribution networks. A fresh approach to risk management and economic performance evaluation may also be required to take full advantage of these innovations.

This Action for Energy Forum will use an interactive and stimulating process of discussion between delegates and experts to explore the future of our electricity supply sector, which could have a greater variety of energy sources and generation technologies and a higher proportion of intermittent sources.

This Action for Energy will use an interactive and stimulating process of discussion between delegates and experts to explore – the future energy mix for power generation – the implications for transmission and distribution systems – the implications for risk management and economic performance and evaluation
