Setting the scenarios

Next week, stakeholders from across the energy industry will meet in London to discuss National Grid’s 2016 Future Energy Scenarios (FES).

The FES are not forecasts, but instead they offer a range of credible pathways for the future of energy through to 2050.

The stakeholder engagement process for the 2016 FES has been broader than ever before, with the introduction of a series of webinars, more interactive workshops, bilateral sessions and an enhanced online presence.

The launch of National Grid’s 2016 Future Energy Scenarios (FES) on July 5 takes place during a period of unprecedented political uncertainty. As European nations digest the UK’s decision to leave the EU, the energy trilemma of security of supply, sustainability and affordability has never been more relevant.

Stakeholders from across the energy sector will gather at the QEII Centre in London to hear how this year’s scenarios have evolved. They will debate the key issues facing the industry, including energy costs, changing consumer behaviour, environmental targets and the rapid emergence of new technologies.

The pace of change in the energy industry is unrelenting and it would be impossible to predict a single outcome over the long-term. The FES are not forecasts, but instead they offer a range of credible pathways for the future of energy through to 2050, enabling stakeholders to make informed decisions based on insight gained from every part of the industry and beyond.

The stakeholder engagement process for the 2016 FES has been broader than ever before, with the introduction of a series of webinars, more interactive workshops, bilateral sessions and an enhanced online presence.

Overall, National Grid also increased the number of organisations engaged during the year from 233 to 362. The views, knowledge and insights gained from those conversations have shaped this year’s FES and will help all stakeholders to better understand the uncertainties around the future of energy.
