This event, with over 600 registered attendees was designed to bring original analysis and forecasting from the Aurora team together with provocative insight and discussion from leading industry figures in a focused, half day session in central London.

Themes include:

Batteries: will frequency response markets be oversupplied leading to a price crash? What might be the effect of National Grid’s redesign of ancillary service markets? When will other business models such as arbitrage be investable?

Gas peakers and DSR: how might the competition between flexible technologies play out? Will gas peakers continue to be developed post triad reform, and how will debt financing work? Will DSR live up to its potential in the GB market, and is this a threat to batteries?

The future of the energy system: how different could the future energy system look given falling costs of renewables, batteries, EVs and other new technologies? Will the wholesale market as we know it continue to exist or will radically new business models and players emerge?
