Helping you make sense of the energy and water sectors


Innovative Delivery Models for Local Power

The electricity sector is becoming increasingly decentralised, with around 40% of all generation capacity now located within the local distribution networks. As the electricity sector continues to decarbonise, the model for delivering truly local power markets is rapidly maturing as new technologies enable innovative models to emerge.

Municipal entities, innovators and other local groups seek to capitalise on smarter networks and falling generation costs to invest and develop low-carbon sources for sale to local consumers. Despite the level of activity now, and expectations for the future, the market and regulatory landscape remains complex and continues to change slowly and often with little consideration of local power markets.

This Pixie Energy course explains how local power fits within the wider national market setting and explains how developers can create markets for local energy. Our expert presenters will also cover how transport and heat requirements are becoming increasingly important as these elements of the economy look to increase their rate of decarbonisation.
