Electricity networks - handling a shock to the system factfile

Ensuring the future stability of the grid while creating a system that can deal with two-way local power flows and less-predictable generation and new demands such as charging of electric vehicles will be a big challenge.

The IET brought together experts from industry, government and the regulator to share learning and knowledge and identify long-term and cost-effective solutions to this challenge.
