Workshop: What market designs and regulatory responses are we seeing that are accelerating change?

Almost by definition, regulated energy market players are unable to innovate. The returns on infrastructure investment, their role in the market and how and what they communicate and sell to consumers are all highly scrutinised by government regulators. For decades, electricity systems have remained largely unchanged and systematic incentives encouraged utilities to resist startups and new market designs. Today these systems are being challenged politically, technically and financially, driven in no small party by the threat of climate change and an urgent agenda to provide energy access for all. At the same time, a combination of technology trends in energy (such as new battery capability) and computing (such as blockchain) show the promise of moving toward a much more decentralised, decarbonised energy system.
