The transformation of the global energy landscape is one of the defining challenges and opportunities of our time.

For a century or more, the availability of electricity has been a given – when demand has increased, the infrastructure has expanded to provide it. The generation of electricity is changing – in short, less fossil fuel, more renewables. The consumption of electricity is also changing, with the ongoing electrification of heating, transport and industry. The way electricity supply and demand are managed must also change, and the technology now exists to do this at a building level as well as at a local, regional and national level.

This guide outlines the changes that will be needed over the next few years as we transition to a net zero economy. It is the fifth in a series of guides published by the Net Zero Building Centre, a joint venture between BSRIA and London South Bank University.
