The authors of this report developed a way to measure at a screening-level the overall flexibility of a portfolio. Their flexibility inventory is based on a methodology developed by the International Energy Agency (IEA) as part of a cross-country comparison of the potential to accommodate growing shares of variable renewables. The primary use of the flexibility inventory is to show trends in the balance between flexibility supply and flexibility demand over the planning horizon.
