ESAP Electricity Security Advisory Panel

‌The electricity sector is at a turning point in the transition to low-carbon sources for generating power. This transition requires massive investments in new generation assets, transmission and distribution networks, as well as improving system operations while managing the transformation associated with new IT and distributed technologies. The deployment of distributed resources, wind, solar PV and demand response is potentially disruptive for the electricity industry. Regulatory and market arrangements must keep pace with these potential game changers.

Against this background, the IEA has established an Advisory Panel on Electricity Security. The Advisory Panel will provide a forum for public and private stakeholders to meet at regular intervals to discuss new developments in electricity markets and to present their views on improvements needed to ensure electricity security.
