Two hundred and twelve companies have been identified by Energy Systems Catapult in the first scoping of the UK’s Digital Energy Landscape.
The digital transformation of energy has the potential to rapidly transform the UK energy system. We want to bring innovative companies together – to identify gaps in the market and synergies in their offerings – to deliver the integrated solutions that will benefit consumers.
The Digital Energy Challenge and Opportunity
The fast-growing energy sector has businesses spanning digital and data platforms, services and physical assets – across residential, commercial, industrial and grid markets.
Digitalisation is already beginning to improve the performance of existing assets and infrastructure; while services are emerging, driven by data, that may unlock value across the whole system.
The Catapult is aiming to identify opportunities and gaps for innovators to capitalise on, as the energy sector transforms in the coming years.
Our Approach to the Digital Landscape
Our initial scoping of the Digital Energy Landscape identified 184 companies across the UK. We then called on digital energy businesses to scrutinise the infographic that was created to decide if they had been correctly classified or identified at all, before engaging with our Energy Launchpad to suggest any changes or omissions.
Following feedback from businesses throughout the UK, we have UPDATED the infographic to feature 212 companies across 18 categories.
We want to bring innovative companies together – to identify gaps in the market and synergies in their offerings – to deliver the integrated solutions that will benefit consumers.
As a result we need clear visibility of the companies that are innovating in this space and the types of innovations that are emerging – so policy-makers, regulators, investors, and indeed innovators themselves, can remove barriers to energy system integration and drive the scale-up that will enable the UK to lead the world in energy system transformation.
