If we are to achieve our Net Zero targets, we will require more than just technological innovation – but innovation in consumer propositions, business models, and the markets that allow them to happen. And this requires robust and enduring policies and regulation, argues Dr Danial Sturge.
Anna Stegman, Technical Liaison Manager for the Energy Revolution Integration Service, writes from the archipelago of Orkney off the northeastern coast of Scotland where efforts to build one of the UK’s first smart energy systems has become talk of the town.
The UK’s gloriously varied building stock needs to reach zero carbon by 2050. Rather than bossing things from the centre, it makes sense to shape solutions that people and places actually want. Here are six potential steps that the UK could take.
As new data finds a green economy boost, Catapult policy chief George Day says the next challenge is to replicate this success in areas where more progress is needed, particularly in buildings.
Energy Systems Catapult recently filmed a roundtable discussion about: ‘How we accelerate a fair transition to low carbon vehicles?’ focused on how feasible it was to bring forward the ban on sales of new internal combustion engines from 2040 and what efforts would be required to address various barriers, including range anxiety, availability of chargepoints, affordable electric vehicle options and supply chain issues.
Power systems engineer, Dr Phil Lawton, is investigating what would happen if the communication channels within the energy system failed, by a temporary internet outage or were compromised accidentally or deliberately.
BBC Panorama approached Energy Systems Catapult to help them understand what the UK Government’s commitment to achieving Net Zero carbon emissions by 2050 will mean for a normal British household, in an episode by called: Climate Change: What Can We Do? Here Dr Matt Lipson focuses on the heat challenge.
How do we ensure that community energy projects benefit both the communities involved and the wider energy system? Planning consultant Richard Leach thinks a local focus on planning for the changes needed in the energy system could help provide the answer.
A combination of Government initiatives to enable access to affordable finance and learning from nuclear deployment programmes elsewhere can reduce nuclear project schedules, risks and costs.
To tackle fuel poverty more effectively, we need to develop our understanding of it through increased focus on innovation – according to ESC fuel poverty specialist Dr Rose Chard.
Energy data has massive potential to transform many aspects of our lives, but how will it affect the future of energy? Dr Richard Dobson, Technical Collaboration Consultant in Energy Systems Catapult’s Digital team, describes a world which harnesses energy data.
In welcoming Energy Minister Claire Perry’s plans for continuing carbon pricing policy after Brexit, George Day says there is a lot of scope for the UK to improve the incentives for businesses and consumers to cut their carbon emissions, and to reward low carbon innovators.
