Flexible Futures – Agenda
27th - 28th April 2023
Octopus Energy Office - Munich East Station
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is driving commitments to renewable generation across Europe.
Meanwhile, growing uptake of low carbon tech is driving electricity demand and creating new peaks. New technologies offer enormous potential for load shifting.
But the window for effectively mobilising these devices is rapidly closing. If we want to support networks and avoid congestion or costly upgrades - and if we want low cost carbon-free balancing – we need to act now.
