This map is an interactive tool designed to help system planners develop an effective flexibility strategy and a flexibility implementation pathway for Northern Ireland.

It provides a Spatio-temporal assessment of the demand flexibility needs, opportunity, response potentials and system adequacy. It also provides priority maps that could be used to identify priority areas when planning flexibility implementation.

The tool could facilitate further research, such as forecasting the uptake of low carbon technologies at the neighbourhood level and in siting large energy storage, renewable generation or district heating schemes.

The tool currently has 14 map layers with over 120 sub-layers and contain features to assist with filtering and visualisation. It has various map views such as satellite, terrain and street view for a more detailed picture and geography tour.
