Strategically expand the capacity and flexibility of the grid
Given that electricity demand and supply will increase significantly in the coming years, it will be essential that the grid can handle the scale and variability of power. One way to ensure this is to develop electrification strategies that avoid overcrowding the electricity system. Governments can provide clear pathways for grid operators to allow investments to be made in a timely manner. Many targets currently exist for EV sales, heat pump installations and renewable energy capacity, and governments will need to translate these targets into concrete geographical capacity that can meet future needs.
