Aiming to help UK households reduce their energy costs and carbon intensity, Amp X is trialling their autonomous, digital energy assistant in up to 60 Living Lab homes.
The Covid-19 pandemic may have caused disruption to some consumer energy projects. But for Energy System Catapult’s Living Lab, disruption has been minimal and innovation trials have continued uninterrupted over the past 15 months.
In this webinar we will explore the importance of interoperability and the benefits of our Living Lab. Join us on the 25th June 2021.
Our webinar ‘Re-Costing Energy: How to Delight Consumers Rather than Bore Them with Bills’ will discuss putting consumers centre stage. Join us 7th June 2021.
A world-first, energy innovation ecosystem, the Whole Energy Systems Accelerator (WESA), is a step closer following a collaboration agreement between the Living Lab at the Energy Systems Catapult and PNDC.
Innovative companies developing smart home products or services that incorporate electric vehicle (EV) charging will benefit from a new offering in Energy Systems Catapult’s real-world test environment – the Living Lab.
Edinburgh-based innovator Amp X is set to trial an autonomous, digital energy assistant in 50 Living Lab homes run by Energy Systems Catapult, aiming to help households to reduce the cost and carbon intensity of their energy and ultimately lead to peer-to-peer trading.
Citizens’ juries have emerged in recent years as a way to engage citizens with complex policy, political and ethical choices. They have a long heritage in other areas of policy (e.g. abortion in Ireland). They are a great way for bringing people to a consensus on how to tackle tricky problems that will affect everyone. This was Dr Matt Lipson’s experience with the Climate Assembly.
Why should the UK be investing in a Living Lab made up of 100 existing homes upgraded to become digitally connected smart-homes? And how is this relevant to Net Zero? Rebecca Sweeney explains.
AirEx has created a smart ventilation control – or put more simply – an intelligent airbrick, that uses sensors to monitor temperature, humidity and air quality in the home. Energy Systems Catapult is working with AirEx to support product validation and accelerate to market, including exploiting data from a trial in our Living Lab to support product development, business planning, and a larger scale trial.
The Living Lab has relaunched for innovation trials after undergoing significant improvements over the six-months of lockdown – including a new digital integration platform.
