Investing for Grid Flexibility: Exclusive Interview with Steve Atkins, DSO Transition Manager at Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks - [an Energy Central Power Perspectives™ Interview]
- Sep 30, 2019 2:47 pm GMT
Flexibility has quickly become one of the pillar grid assets that utility companies are looking to leverage when building the grid of the future. No longer do leaders envision an energy system run entirely by a central power plant with electricity sold and distributed directly to end-user, and in its place is a more interconnected, quick to adjust, a partnership that sees flexibility as key.
This transition to a more decentralized and distributed grid cannot happen overnight, though, and the need for smart investing, forward-looking decisions, and overall leadership is still robust. These needs are going to be the focus of Steve Atkins’ presentation at the upcoming Smart Grid Flexibility 2019 conference this week. Steve, a DSO Transition Manager with Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks, will share his talk entitled “Investing for Flexibility – developing a robust investment decision-making framework for weighing up flexibility investments with traditional grid reinforcement.”
