Our new system value framework can power the energy transition

The need for energy continues to rise and the demand for electricity as a preferred source is growing at an even greater pace. COVID-19 has reiterated the importance of electricity as an essential life service – and the ‘grid’ has proven resilient in keeping the power flowing to critical infrastructure, such as hospitals, key industries, data centres and households. We now have a rare opportunity to ensure a sustainable energy future by accelerating the clean energy transition and fast-tracking our decarbonization efforts.

This can be facilitated through focused grid investments and by leveraging recovery and stimulus plans. Enhancing flexibility, reliability and efficiency to integrate more renewables into the energy mix, building interconnections and ensuring power quality are some of the key areas that will drive the transformation of the grid. Innovative technologies and digitalization will be key enablers in support of this effort.
