edie launches new business guide on flexible energy for net-zero
edie has today (10 May) launched a free guide outlining the key considerations, challenges and opportunities for businesses looking to trial and deploy flexible energy solutions.
This guide, supported by Flexitricity, answers key business questions surrounding the deployment and investment into flexible energy solutions.
What is flexible energy? Why do we need flexible energy systems? and what are the business opportunities for turning to flexible energy to help with wider sustainability goals? This explains guide answers all of these questions and more.
With reports finding that flexible energy solutions could cut £660m in costs off UK's net-zero transition, now is a crucial time for businesses to get to grips with the plethora of solutions that can be tailored to their business operations.
Flexibility in the energy system is essential to ensuring a resilient supply. Traditionally, fossil-fuelled generation such as large coal or gas-fired power stations have been used to provide the flexibility needed to match supply to demand at peak hours, or when renewables output is low.
This current approach is not in alignment with the UK's net-zero goals, and businesses that are looking to assist with the national target will have to uncover their own approaches to flexible clean energy use moving forward.
