The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and the energy regulator Ofgem have released plans for a major upgrade of the UK’s energy system.
Within the document, published this morning alongside a major investment programme for battery storage and electric vehicles, the duo have outlined how it intends to stimulate a drastic modernisation of the UK’s energy market, both on networks and in homes and businesses.
Business secretary Greg Clark said: “Upgrading our energy system to make sure it is fit for the future is a key part of our Industrial Strategy to deliver a smarter, more flexible energy system. A smarter energy system will create new businesses and high-skilled jobs, while making sure our infrastructure is able to cope with demand.
“We are determined through our Industrial Strategy to address the challenges we face and ensure our energy is reliable, affordable and clean.”
