Implementing Net Zero Carbon in Practice Unit 3: Decarbonised Electricity
The supply of carbon free electricity is one of the major success factors to achieving net zero carbon. The UK National Grid is attempting to achieve net zero carbon by 2030 on its electricity grid. However, given the intermittent nature of renewable energy, the transition to a decarbonised electrical grid does not come without challenges. In this unit, we will explore electricity generation technology and methods of storage and transmission

• Recognise renewable electricity generation technology at work in the UK National Grid.
• Understand how energy storage techniques are being employed to manage the intermittent generation of renewable electricity.
• Appreciate the wider smart grid, how it is controlled and how energy flows are managed between generator and consumer.
• Understand the shift between traditional consumers and those who also generate electricity and 'prosume' with the smart grid.
