Edinburgh-based innovator Amp X is set to trial an autonomous, digital energy assistant in 50 Living Lab homes run by Energy Systems Catapult, aiming to help households to reduce the cost and carbon intensity of their energy and ultimately lead to peer-to-peer trading.
An innovative low carbon retrofit solution for the social housing sector, that uses a modular approach to keep costs low, is being trialled in Energy Systems Catapult’s Living Lab.
Why should the UK be investing in a Living Lab made up of 100 existing homes upgraded to become digitally connected smart-homes? And how is this relevant to Net Zero? Rebecca Sweeney explains.
The Living Lab has relaunched for innovation trials after undergoing significant improvements over the six-months of lockdown – including a new digital integration platform.
To coincide with World EV Day, Energy Systems Catapult has given innovators access to unique
This trial for the Energy Revolution Integration Service explored how smart heating controls may help vulnerable households afford the energy they need to be safe, healthy and comfortable.
Bristol Energy became the first energy supplier in the UK to sell ‘Heat as a Service’ – tailoring an offer based consumers’ individual home and lifestyle, rather than selling kilowatt hours of gas.
Siemens project – ‘Your Online Digital Architecture’ – developed partners Energy Systems Catapult and National Innovation Centre for Data, aims to deliver a ‘digitally integrated energy system’ under the Modernising Energy Data Access competition.
Baxi Heating UK trialled ‘Heat as a Service’ with households in our Living Lab, creating a proposition that bundled a new heating system together with energy for a fixed monthly price.
Energy Systems Catapult created a heat-as-a-service offering called a ‘Heat Plan’ – where instead of buying units of energy (kWh), consumers buy hours of warmth in their home – called ‘Warm Hours’.
Energy Systems Catapult is developing a Digital Energy Fitness assessment for energy sector businesses that want to capture the opportunities of innovating to Net Zero.
Data, if managed correctly, can be a valuable asset; delivering fascinating and useful insights. Manage it incorrectly, and data can be confusing, contradictory, or more trouble than it’s worth. Jake Verma offers insights into our work around the UK helping local innovation projects to Prosper from the Energy Revolution.
Scottish energy firm Biskit Controls has become the latest business to begin demonstrating an innovation in the Energy System Catapult’s 100-home Living Lab.
