The University of Birmingham, together with Energy Capital and the Energy Systems Catapult, has unveiled a report making the case for the creation of Energy Innovation Zones (EIZs) in the West Midlands. The commission, which was chaired by Sir David King, calls for four pilot energy hubs to be located in Central Birmingham and Tyseley, UK Central in Solihull, the Black Country and Coventry South.
The Energy Systems Catapult (ESC) has partnered with Utility Week magazine to explore the driving forces – and challenges – behind the transformation of the UK energy system. With key players across the energy space, the roundtable will encourage active debate around three key areas affecting the industry, and its journey to a decarbonised, decentralised and digitalised system.
Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) is holding a Green Summit on 21st March, with the aim of collaboratively designing an environmental charter.

Six years on, the CCC are revisiting the review, and have issued a Call for Evidence. This blog sets out the key messages from a joint response to the call from the Energy Systems Catapult (ESC) and Energy Technologies Institute (ETI).
Conventional approaches to ‘protecting’ the fuel poor have focussed on the needs of the energy system, not those of the consumer. The Energy Systems Catapult (ESC) is partnering with organisations from various sectors on a programme – Fair Futures – to better understand the issues faced by vulnerable energy consumers and help identify possible solutions.
