The July 2017 Smart Systems and Flexibility Plan set out 29 specific actions for BEIS, Ofgem and industry to deliver in order to remove barriers to smart technologies such as storage, enable smart homes and businesses, and to ensure markets reward the value that flexibility provides to the system. In October 2018 we published a Progress Update with nine new actions.

We have now implemented 18 of the original 29 actions, five of the nine new actions and, as per the original plan, we are committed to delivering the remainder by 2022.
