Six innovative tech companies have been selected for a rigorous business growth programme due to their potential to transform the energy system by exploiting digital technology and data.
Systems thinking in the energy system is a working document and is intended to help stakeholders enter a ‘Systems Thinking’ mindset and starts to develop a shared language for discussing whole energy system thinking.
Energy Systems Catapult conducted research and produced a discussion paper to provide clarity around the concept of interoperability, how it’s used in the market and how the sector can use it to effect change. It was intended to start discussion within the sector on this key topic, and market feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.
EnergyPath® Operations is our cutting-edge simulation tool, for testing energy systems, technologies and business models in a risk-free environment. Here we explored the consumer and economic benefits of selling Heat as a Service to enable demand-side management.
The Dynamic Energy Systems Simulation team uses a first-of-a-kind whole system simulation tool – EnergyPath® Operations – to analyse the behaviour of technologies, business models and information technology solutions within simulated future energy system designs, so that decisions can be made more quickly and more cheaply than by running real world trials.
Interoperability is seen by many in the energy sector as key to unlocking flexibility services. This paper argues interoperability should be considered more broadly. Understanding its wider implications will be essential if the energy system and consumers of energy are to benefit from the potential of digitisation.
The Future Power System Architecture programme is recommending more agile change and governance for the UK power system to ensure it is accessible, flexible and fit for the purpose of coordinating increasingly dynamic disruption in the sector.
This report presents a series of conceptual tools and analyses developed from systems engineering tools applied to the future UK energy system.
The FPSA project has been tasked to set out, and provide evidence for, the functions that will need to be performed in the future power system as a result of its ongoing transformative change
