Increasing the flexibility of energy systems as they undergo transformation driven by the trilemma of environmental policy, resilience, and economic growth, is an issue for both the UK and Brazil. In Brazil, increasing environmental concerns, electricity prices, and rising energy consumption influence the energy system and the technology mix within it. Meanwhile, a rapid deployment of variable renewable electricity generation, pressure to keep costs down for domestic and business consumers, and the political imperative of keeping the lights on, are drivers of the transformation in the UK.
