Innovation is not only affecting the choice of technology but also the economics of the electricity industry, the business models and potentially the whole organization of the sector.
Higher (pro-active) participation of consumers and decreasing scale economies (in generation or/and storage) will change the role of network and traditional organization of the sector (centralized with flows from generation to consumers). To benefit from the opportunities of the transformation it is imperative to adapt regulations and policy accordingly.
The first online debate leading up to the FSR Global Forum discusses the topic of energy regulation in times of disruptive innovation.
