Introduction There is a global call for decarbonisation to prevent the global temperature rising more than 1. Electrification of heat and transport is the most promising method of decarbonisation, and the falling cost of renewables such as wind and solar generation presents the opportunity to decarbonise electricity generation.
Low-carbon technologies such as heat pumps, thermal storage and electric vehicles provide the means for consumers to switch from fossil fuel technologies.
The UK is leading the climate action and has passed a series of legislation to cut down CO2 emissions. First, it has legislated for a net-zero greenhouse gas target . Second, it has banned new homes from connecting to gas heating by . It has also proposed a ban on petrol and diesel car sales by . However, the existing electrical grid was not built to handle the expected new demand for heat and transport.
Furthermore, the intermittent nature of renewables, coupled with the fact that electrical demand and supply must match at any time for the grid to operate safely, creates much complexity in this new system that was not experienced in the conventional grid system .
The power system has not undergone this kind of change since it was invented. The result is that the existing grid infrastructure would need to be upgraded to cope with the new demand and complexities.
The cost of this network upgrade and the additional complexity caused by managing renewable generation would eventually be passed down to the consumers. Social housing is provided for people on low incomes or with particular needs by government agencies or non-profit organisations. Hence, it is easier for the government to implement policies Energies , 13, ; doi However, oil and gas boilers are still installed in these houses because of their low cost, making such government schemes against current government legislation for Net-Zero and the ban of fossil fuel heating.
Hence, such fuel poverty schemes need to be modified to install low-carbon heating in these vulnerable households. However, this will mean fewer interventions can be made under the current budget since the capital cost of installing low-carbon heating such as heat pumps and thermal storage doubles that of an oil or gas boiler.
Secondly, vulnerable consumers must be protected against high electricity prices that could result from the cost of network reinforcement needed to support heat electrification. Hence, by installing flexible low-carbon heating in fuel-poor homes and prioritising their use in providing system services, the government could reduce fuel poverty, CO2 emissions while preventing expensive network upgrades.
System operators have traditionally invested in grid reinforcement to reduce congestion during peak times or worst-case scenario, thus the rule for which they size the grid. Typically, these peak times occur a few hours in the day.
There are periods, especially at night, during which the grid is under-used. The load factor of a network is the ratio of the average load to the peak load. A higher load factor is needed to ensure that the existing grid is efficiently utilised before any consideration for upgrading it.
Hence, the need for flexibility to move consumers demand away from peak periods to off-peak periods. Whenever the demand on a feeder exceeds the local generations, voltage drops along the feeder.
Whenever local generation at the feeder exceeds the demand, the voltage along the feeder rises. The power system was designed for unidirectional power flow, but when generation exceeds demand at the low voltage network, there is reverse power flow to the transformer. By increasing demand during times of excess wind or solar generation, the system operator could reduce voltage rise as well as backflows.
Meanwhile, by increasing local generation during peak times or by shifting or reducing demand during these peak times, under-voltage or overloading can be reduced. Heat pumps can provide flexibility using the thermal inertia of the building, as investigated in . However, this is not energy efficient, especially in buildings with low thermal inertia, as it increases overall energy consumption and could result in discomfort for the consumers .
Another method is to use thermal storage: Typically, a hot water buffer tank or heat batteries that make use of phase change materials, to shift demand from peak to off-peak period . Lastly, heat pumps could be installed in combination with an existing oil or gas boiler in a hybrid configuration, switching to the oil or gas boiler whenever there is network constraint or when it is inefficient to run the heat pump such as when the external temperature is very low.
The conclusion from the study is that an efficient demand response strategy should be market-based while respecting grid capacity constraint . This will ensure that new congestions do not arise as a result of conflicting demand response programs [15,16].
Various methods of ensuring cost-reflective pricing in distribution networks were reviewed in [17,18]. A method to assess the cost-reflectiveness of network tariffs is developed in . The study also discusses how tariffs could be adjusted to better align consumer bills with their contribution to network peak.
Such cost-reflective tariff is vital for a sustainable electricity grid . The issue of congestions from microgrids is investigated in ; the recommendation is that capacity billing should be favoured over volumetric billing to incentivise microgrid operators to balance their load and generation. Consumers behaviour and acceptance to demand-based tariffs is investigated in [23—26].
The challenges of achieving effective voluntary demand reduction for residential consumers is investigated in [27,28]. The study shows that a significant number of consumers are unresponsive to price. However, low-income households and households that use electricity for space heating are more responsive. The impact of time of use pricing on network peak is investigated in . The study concluded that the success of a demand response program depends on the flexible nature of the consumer devices and customer education about the tariff structure and implications.
The study in  developed a methodology for grid operators to decide whether to implement demand response by comparing the cost of curtailing demand or distributed generation with the cost of additional network investment.
It further develops a dynamic pricing model for it. A reinforcement learning algorithm to solve the uncertainty in real-time pricing faced by consumers and energy suppliers is developed in .
An agent-based demand response mechanism for real-time congestion management in low voltage networks is developed in . The work assumes the day-ahead market price as the price of flexibility but suggested further research to properly quantify and value available flexibility. The authors of  developed a data-driven approach to explore the flexibility from a cluster of buildings. The response of a pool of heat pump responding to direct load control via the Smart-Grid-Ready interface is analysed in .
The paper concluded that flexibility is highly dependent on the ambient temperature and the use of an electric back-up heater. The Freedom project trialled the use of hybrid air-source heat pumps and gas boiler to provide flexibility in the south-wales distribution networks. An issue with dynamic pricing is demand response concentration at lowest-price periods, leading to new network peaks. To solve this problem,  suggested a restriction in the maximum power drawn from each device.
Both the restriction or penalisation strategies are not desirable by the consumers and presents another set of problems for demand response implementation, including limiting the maximum amount of response that can be gotten from a pool of assets and hence reducing the business case. Assessment and comparison of demand response strategies in the literature are limited to considering only different types of dynamic pricing.
For example,  attempts to compare tariff business models. However, its scope is limited to dynamic pricing. Furthermore, it only considers the economic incentive for consumers; the effectiveness to reduce peaks is not addressed. The study in  is limited to comparing a flat tariff with a generic peak-shaving tariff. The research conducted in  is limited to time-of-use tariff.
Often, the choice is between the three main class of demand response strategies. Only after that choice is made, before details of the specific design of the tariff type is discussed. Determining how effective these strategies are in relieving congestions, how these various strategies can be combined or which strategy is best for a given network scenario, is vital for efficient and economical smart network design.
We simulate each demand response strategy on a case study network using real measurement data. We assess their effectiveness in reducing congestions using metrics such as the total hours of loading violations and the number of nodes with voltage violations. Energies , 13, 4 of 29 2. Methodology 2. Data Processing and Selection In this work, thermal flexibility is provided solely by using thermal storage Heat battery while the consumers heat demand timing comfort is respected.
A heat battery is a type of thermal storage that uses phase change materials PCM. The PCM cools from liquid back to solid whenever cold water is passed through it; this way the energy stored is released, and hot water is produced. The advantage of the heat battery is its low heat loss and smaller size compared to the use of a hot water tank. Hence, it can be fitted into compact spaces, which is very suitable for social housing.
The Sunamp Uniq Dual 12 battery was used for modelling the heat battery. It is capable of replacing a L hot water cylinder. It has a heat loss rate of 0. We assumed each house had two heat batteries a total of 20 kW of heat storage powered by a heat pump . Heat pump load profiles were sourced from the datasets of the Renewable Heat Premium Payment RHPP trial, which monitored heat pump loads in about homes . The time-series data in watt-hour for both space heating and domestic hot water was recorded at two-minute resolution.
The dataset includes metadata describing the kind of heat pump and type of dwelling of each site. Some filters were applied to the processed sample to remove sites that either had technical issues such as incorrect sensor installations or when a significant amount of data streams was missing from the data. Only the best 12 months period of the data was selected for each site. The results were uploaded as Sample B2, which contains sites . However, the Sample B2 also contains lots of missing rows; hence, further cleaning was done to fill up these missing rows by setting them to the previous value if the missing time-step was not more than 10 minutes; otherwise, the values are set to zero.
This was done to make each site data the same size and allow for further calculations to be done on the data. Details of the selection process is shown in Figure 1. The selected profiles were used to simulate the default individual heat pump profile without storage in this work. The data contained both the electricity drawn by each heat pump and the amount of heat generated.
This is used in the simulation. However, when simulating charging of the heat battery with the heat pump, we use the hourly average coefficient of performance COP of the heat pump to determine the amount of heat stored per kWh of electricity drawn, since the actual COP for that hour is unknown. Time series data from a 2 kW SolarEdge PV panel installed at the Ulster University test house and monitored using the SolarEdge monitoring platform were used in the simulation to represent the PV generation profiles for the portfolio.
SonnenBatterie ECO 8. By using real heat pumps, PV and Network data, this methodology guarantees that the results are as close to a real-life situation as possible since the simulation was considered for a full year, which caters for seasonal and diurnal changes.
The uncertainty in this work stems from a lack of Northern Ireland specific heat pump dataset since the RHPP trial was limited to British households. Hence, we call for a large-scale heat monitoring trial to give a detailed picture of how Northern Irish consumers would use heat pumps and other low-carbon heating solutions.

Figure 4: What are the 21st century skills? Source: Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority, 21st century skills. Brisbane: Queensland Government. Digital literacy Digital literacy is the ability of individuals to use information and communications technology ICT appropriately to access, manage, integrate and evaluate information, develop new understandings, and communicate with others in order to participate effectively in society.
The Department of Jobs and Small Business report Australian Jobs recognises digital literacy as a key requirement for workers of the future and a key skill for non-routine jobs. The Foundation for Young Australians analysed 4.
Research is showing that basic digital literacy will become a universal requirement for future employment. With the increasing focus on 21st century skills, it is important not to forget the basics, literacy and numeracy. Numerous interviews conducted for this report revealed a common theme: that young people, now and in the future, will need to leave the education system with foundational literacy and numeracy skills that are essential for further learning.
According to Professor Lesley Farrell, for young people to have a successful career, maths matters. She cited the work of Dr David Deming, who found that employment and wage growth was strongest for those jobs requiring high levels of both maths and social skills. Professor Farrell explained that the education system and employers will need to find ways to re-engage and train people who find reading, writing and maths challenging. Young people have always required skills to plan their career and gain employment, as well as to navigate life, including budget management and preparing a tax return.
These skills will gain importance as the working world changes, bringing with it new technology-enabled employment models and multiple career pathways. FYA has advocated that to prepare young people for the future of work, we need to shift away from the mindset of a single career pathway and support young people to develop a portfolio of skills, knowledge and attitudes that are portable across many jobs and sectors.
Further, as employment becomes more precarious, skills needed to navigate employment conditions will be critical. Employees will need to be able to negotiate the terms of their contract, including initiating the conversation and advocating for their own needs. Career management and life skills education programs offered in schools will need to adapt to prepare students for this new working world.
The mental health and wellbeing of young Australians The future of Australia is dependent upon young people being happy, well, and ready to meet the challenges of work and life. However, youth mental health and wellbeing is an area of ever-increasing concern.
Currently, one in four adolescents live with a probable serious mental illness, and this rate is rising. Tragically, the number of deaths by suicide of young Australians is the highest it has been in ten years. Without appropriate support, mental health problems often increase in severity and can lead to social withdrawal, the breakdown of relationships, and poor education and employment outcomes.
Forty-three per cent of young people identify mental health as an important issue facing Australia today. Twenty five per cent of young people surveyed by ReachOut were so stressed by exams they sought help from a counsellor, GP or mental health professional. This includes resilience, which is the ability to bounce back from challenges, change or adversity. Figure 5: A model of building resilience for young adults.

He loves living out of home and values his independence, but being unemployed means that he is constantly worried about having enough money to pay his rent and bills. Looking for work is making him feel angry and stressed, and is starting to impact on his sense of self-worth.
Grace has met with ten or more lawyers to discuss jobs and employment in the legal field. She has also arranged over 20 meetings with other lawyers to find out more about what they do and to discover any opportunities. Grace feels that she has followed the advice given to her constantly while growing up: she performed well in high school, got into a good university, studied hard and excelled at her studies.
She feels let down by the education system and wonders if it was all worth it. Grace says that she has always struggled with her mental health, having suffered from anxiety at high school.
After finding herself in this uncertain situation with work, she says that her anxiety has increased and she experiences semi-regular panic attacks. Sometimes I wonder if it was a waste of time.
Everyone told me to be a lawyer but I often wonder if I should have done something different. The mental health and wellbeing impacts of precarious employment for young workers Research from the UK has found that the effects of an increasingly flexible labour market, resulting in young people working in temporary or part-time roles, is associated with a number of indicators relating to negative mental health and wellbeing.
This change means that employees are less able to ask management for help, advice or feedback, which for young people at the beginning of their career is an important part of mentoring and skill development.
Second, research has shown that those working in precarious employment, who may be uncertain about regular pay cheques and under intense pressure to meet multiple deadlines, have high self-reported mental health symptoms, including low self-esteem, anxiety and depression. Third, behind the flexibility and autonomy of gig work is the reality that workers often have little choice but to work from home, which can result in a lack of social contact and feelings of loneliness and isolation.
Lastly, Professor Helen Cahill, of the Melbourne Graduate School of Education, argues that an increase in casual work makes it harder for young people to find the time to get together and socialise. Indeed, balancing multiple, short-term contract jobs with social commitments can cause a great deal of stress for young people.
Less time spent with family and friends, which are important protective factors for mental wellbeing, may contribute to feelings of disconnection and isolation.
Zoe considers herself a gig-economy worker. After studying fashion at the University of Technology Sydney and working full-time for two years, she is now starting her own fashion brand. In this start-up phase, with limited cash flow, Zoe is driving part-time for Uber to help cover her rent.
While young Australians are now more likely to have a qualification, around half of year-olds are not yet working full-time hours. She struggled to cover her rent and ended up asking her parents for financial help. They are exposed to the adverse mental health effects of unemployment, with their ability to become financially independent delayed. With over 3.
The changing and uncertain working world has led to the need for new skills, a shift in the way we think and plan for work and life, and the enhanced need for resilience. The traditional model of education is falling short and must be reconsidered.
We must explore how the education system can better support young Australians to transition into the working world in the shadow of the fourth industrial revolution.
The Australian education system is broadly segmented into four sub-sectors 1. Primary school: reception or foundation to year 6 or 7 state dependent , with the focus on developing essential literacy, numeracy and social skills, and providing foundational knowledge to children about the world around them. Secondary school: years 6 or 7 to year 10, with subject matter becoming more specialised within learning areas.
Senior secondary school: years 11 and 12, with progressive specialisation and a focus on the requirements for achieving the Senior Secondary Certificate of Education. Tertiary education, which includes higher education and vocational, education and training. ATAR is a ranking given to Australian students that is necessary to gain entrance into university.
APLAN is an annual assessment for schoolchildren N of varying ages that tests reading, writing, language conventions spelling, grammar and punctuation and numeracy. These assessment schemes are based on principles of reliability, rather than the necessary validity to ensure graduates are future fit.
As such, students may be missing out on the skills they require to be successful in the ever-changing working world. It tests reading, writing, language conventions spelling, grammar and punctuation and numeracy. A recent report by The Mitchell Institute commented that the ATAR and NAPLAN may be giving disproportionate emphasis to academic activity, and that this could drive misdirected priorities for teachers, school leaders and education departments. Media and Law Student, Macquarie University, Sydney A third-year Media and Law student at Macquarie University in Sydney shared that, while at school, particularly towards the end of high school, she felt pressured to choose subjects that were more theoretical in nature with the aim of gaining a higher ATAR.
This meant she passed on her preferred subjects, which were arts-based and encouraged creativity and the learning of soft skills. Some academics and educational institutions have recognised the limitations of the current reliability testing framework and are taking active steps to focus on assessments of validity to foster the development and teaching of 21st century skills. Young people want to feel more prepared Young people want to feel more prepared to find secure work.
A recent ReachOut survey89 asked young people who felt inadequately prepared for the workforce what could be done to help them. Real-world work experience at high school One school consulted during the writing of this report revealed that it is no longer able to provide work experience opportunities to its high school students due to budgetary constraints. A Working With Children Check WWCC is required for personnel at each work experience location, and the associated volume of administration was too great.
As a result, the school took the decision to remove the program. This is concerning and unlikely to be an isolated case. Given these challenges, it is important to consider how we can continue to provide these rich learning experiences.
Tertiary education The Australian tertiary education sector is segmented into vocational, education and training VET and higher education. The VET sector, which includes Technical and Further Education TAFE institutions and other registered training organisations, provides students with access to a range of practical and skill-based courses.
Higher education providers, which include a range of research and teaching universities, offer both practical and theorybased courses, with many degrees a blend of the two. Despite close to one million new jobs predicted to be created by and approximately 90 per cent of these jobs requiring a post-school qualification,90 youth unemployment rates continue to rise and young people are worried about their job prospects after school and university.
Submissions to the Senate Select Committee on the Future of Work and Workers referenced a number of ways the higher education sector needed to change, and is changing, to meet future work requirements. Close partnerships between the tertiary sector and industry would better identify future workforce needs and ensure that new and emerging skills are embedded in teaching programs and that real-world work experience is incorporated into courses and degrees. Greater linkages between the VET and higher education sectors would allow students to move flexibly between institutions and qualifications so that entry into education and training is easier, and prior qualifications are recognised.
Employers: Provide training opportunities for employees, with ongoing professional education and upskilling a greater requirement as the working world continues to change. Employers should also explore providing employees with the time to upskill. Young people: Own their educational needs based on individual motivations, recognising that the model of education is evolving and that they are responsible for obtaining the right skills to maximise their career success, whatever it may look like.
Kiara, entering thirdyear of university and working part-time, Sydney Kiara has just finished her second year of university, studying a Bachelor of Business Management at a private higher education institution in Sydney. Having grown up in the country, she chose her university degree after attending an information day at her high school.
She now has a part-time job at the same company she has interned for as part of her degree. Kiara feels that it is very hard for young people to get experience, as many companies want employees to have experience before they will hire them. She feels that it could be the role of educational institutions to help bridge this gap between education and industry, including for high school students who want to enter the workforce via entry-level roles.
Education for life As the world of work changes, and changes at a rapid pace, smaller, faster and smarter approaches to learning are required. Universities are responding to this demand to both upskill and learn new skills by providing new and flexible qualifications.
Pro Vice-Chancellor of Education at the University of Technology Sydney, Peter Scott, shared that one of the key focus areas of the university is postgraduate qualifications, and how the university can support the requirements of the workforce. Employers are also responding to this need by providing opportunities for their employees to upskill. EY also offers its employees access to Udemy, an online learning and teaching marketplace whose training courses are globally recognised. So, in a sense people will need to learn how to be a whole person in a world where work is changing and will continue to change throughout their lives.
For this reason, the systems and networks around young people, including educators, governments, employers, and parents and families, need to work together to help them respond to future challenges.
It is also essential that young people are recognised as the most important participants in their future. As powerful voices and influencers in the decisions of their futures, what needs to be done must be developed in conjunction with young people, not for them.
If we take this approach, we can reduce the negative impacts of mental health challenges on young people and communities, and ensure that the environments where young people live, learn and work will enable them to thrive. Case study: Giving young people a voice VicHealth Youth Deliberative Forum A forum held by VicHealth in adopted a model of deep citizen engagement to gather insights from a group of diverse young people about what can be done to support the mental health of young adults while looking for purposeful employment.
The process found that young people wanted the institutions and networks in their lives — their schools and universities, teachers, parents, government and future industries — to support them on their pathway to purposeful work.

Teach new skills for new careers: Equipping students for the 21st century The Review to Achieve Educational Excellence in Australian Schools, chaired by David Gonski AC, was supported by an independent panel of experts drawn from different states, school systems and sectors.
The Review committee also noted that it was vital that university entrance did not overshadow a focus on vocationally based education in senior secondary education. Currently, senior secondary education models follow a curriculum that is separate from Foundation to Year 10 and is oriented towards academic disciplines for university entrance.
Other submissions to the committee introduced the concept of teaching employability. An additional recent Senate Select Committee report also identified skills required for the future that distinguished humans from machines, including critical thinking, creativity, adaptability and emotional intelligence.

The school has invested in the development of a learning model, the Creative Inquiry Cycle, which focuses on a capability driven curriculum, personalised learning and leadership for innovation. The model is being used to support teachers to design programs that allow students to develop their creative and critical thinking.

The use of the Creative Inquiry Cycle framework is still in its infancy. However, the school is reporting positive results and improved learning, with students being more collaborative, imaginative and curious, and showing greater engagement in the classroom.
