The Energy Systems Catapult is delivering major projects to ensure the transformation of the energy sector is taking a whole systems approach and innovators can navigate routes to market.
Discover our current projects and track our progress on Whole Energy Systems Analysis, maintenance of the 2050 Calculator and understanding the potential for multi-vector test and demonstration facilities. The Smart Systems and Heat programme is looking at ways to deliver low-carbon heating solutions with a series of projects covering Local Area Energy Planning, simulation of energy system value chains with the EnergyPath Operations project and the Home Energy Services Gateway project is attracting innovators exploring ‘energy as a service’ and providing valuable consumer insight services.
We are looking at how to tackle fuel poverty through the Fair Futures project, while Future Power System Architecture is providing the enabling framework needed to address how innovators can integrate new solutions into the energy system of tomorrow.
FPSA is an ambitious project assessing the challenges and identifying the new functionality required in the electricity system by 2030
The Energy Systems Catapult (ESC) and the Power Networks Demonstration Centre (PNDC) in Strathclyde are collaborating with
