Our Whole Energy Market Strategy team was established in early 2024 to develop an independent view of cross vector market interactions, providing recommended solutions to tackling challenges, conflicts and inefficiencies to facilitate net zero.

The work will be split over a number of distinct phases as follows: 

Barista Coffee ESO

Phase 1 – Case for change (2024)

Analysis of the GB market landscape and review of international case studies. The purpose of this phase is to set out the framework for future phases of work.

Subsequent phases will conduct more detailed analysis on priorities identified in phase one.
