The Energy White Paper launched in December was designed to present a vision for how government intends to make the transition to a Net Zero energy system by 2050. This insight article focuses specifically on the impact for Smart Local Energy Systems (SLES).
This report makes the case for a new ‘Carbon Regulator’ to oversee accurate and coherent monitoring, reporting, and verification of greenhouse gas emissions reduction and removal across the economy.
The Department for Education and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy commissioned Energy Systems Catapult to carry out a short investigation with the aim of identifying the principal challenges and opportunities associated with decarbonising the English school estate – which is responsible for a quarter of carbon emissions from the public sector estate.
Energy Systems Catapult has identified 313 companies in the first scoping of the UK’s Electric Vehicle Energy Landscape. Produced as part of the Innovating for Clean Air (IfCA) project, our landscape maps the EV supply chain, from distribution & transmission to consumers.
Electric vehicle sales are rising from a very low level. Uptake needs to spread beyond early adopters to the entire market. But around 30% of UK households have no access to off-street parking. This paper reports research exploring charging options for these households.
Rethinking Electricity Markets is an Energy Systems Catapult initiative to develop proposals to reform electricity markets so that they best enable innovative, efficient, whole energy system decarbonisation.
To achieve the 2050 Net Zero target, 5.5 million socially rented homes need to be decarbonised. These homes represent a diverse portfolio of property types, and tenants with different needs, therefore a range of solutions will be required. This research provides insight on the drivers and challenges for social housing providers and the potential opportunities for Smart Local Energy System (SLES) services to help them meet their targets.
Leading Midlands social housing landlord whg led a consortium on the InnovateUK funded two year project exploring the potential of offsite modular housing construction. Energy Systems Catapult undertook dynamic modelling assessments using our Home Energy Dynamics tool-kit to calculate the building’s energy and thermal efficiency for various home configurations, building materials, power and heating systems, and occupancy profiles.
The Developing Carbon Credit Markets report explores how linking sectoral policies through trading can play a key role in opening a pathway to an economy-wide carbon policy framework. This report is part of the Net Zero Carbon Policy project, focusing on how the UK can develop an innovation-friendly, economy-wide framework for Net Zero.
The Energy Revolution integration Service engaged with people actively developing Smart Local Energy Systems to gather insight into the main challenges and offer recommendations based on experience from other sectors and related research programmes.
A new independent report produced for the Climate Change Committee by Energy Systems Catapult for input into their Sixth Carbon Budget advice to Government, says: careful policy design can deliver deep decarbonisation, while ensuring energy-intensive, trade-exposed industries are not disadvantaged compared to international peers.
The Electric Vehicle Energy Taskforce made 21 proposals in January 2020 to ensure the energy system is able to accelerate the mass take-up of electric vehicles,. Energy Systems Catapult was central to analysing those proposals and recommending EVET focus on 10 high priority actions.
