Future Power Systems Architect Project - tech opportunities

On Monday techUK hosted the part of the Future Power Systems Architecture (FPSA) team from the Energy Systems Catapult for a workshop to discuss the opportunities that exist for tech players in this project. 

FSPA is a combined effort involving dozens of industry professionals, academics, policymakers and stakeholders, led by the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Energy Systems Catapult, sponsored by Innovate UK, to assess the challenges to be faced in the electricity system by 2030 and to identify new functionality required.

The project has currently identified 35 functions that will be required in by 2030 with these ranging from those that help manage the interface with connected energy systems to providing capabilities for use in emergencies. Discussions in the workshop focused on some of the connectivity characteristics that will be need to faciliate these functions, the ability to introduce more innovation into the sector - including in market policy, and around data governance and access. 

These are all areas that techUK will be exploring in our Smart Energy work stream. If you would like to find out more on this work then please get in touch.
