DEI Briefing Note: Smart electricity markets


In this breifing note, we examine the ways in which electricity markets are being reconfigured in relation to the emergence of ‘smart’ electricity systems and the multiple, and conflicting, spatial logics that are underpinning such developments as they take place in urban contexts in the UK. 

We consider this in relation to two lines of analysis drawn from the Customer-Led Network Revolution project which work through the economic geographies of the UK’s power system and the various promises of  ‘smart’. First, we consider attempts to create ‘smart’ consumers in UK electricity supply markets, and secondly, we consider the development of new forms of network flexibility
