To coincide with World EV Day, Energy Systems Catapult has given innovators access to unique
The Flexibly-Responsive Energy Delivery project, led by Evergreen Smart Power, is testing a software platform that provides Demand Side Response (DSR) by integrating and managing energy technologies in real time, reacting to grid conditions to increase or reduce their electricity consumption. This report summarises consumer insights on electric vehicle charging and DSR based on five participants from the FRED project.
The Flexibly-Responsive Energy Delivery project, led by Evergreen Smart Power, is testing a software platform that integrates and manages energy technologies in real time, reacting to grid conditions to increase or reduce their electricity consumption. Energy Systems Catapult is gathering insights about consumers’ expectations, understanding and experiences of this flexible approach to energy consumption.
This trial for the Energy Revolution Integration Service explored how smart heating controls may help vulnerable households afford the energy they need to be safe, healthy and comfortable.
Baxi Heating UK trialled ‘Heat as a Service’ with households in our Living Lab, creating a proposition that bundled a new heating system together with energy for a fixed monthly price.
Energy Systems Catapult created a heat-as-a-service offering called a ‘Heat Plan’ – where instead of buying units of energy (kWh), consumers buy hours of warmth in their home – called ‘Warm Hours’.
99% of businesses in the UK are SMEs responsible for 47% of commercial energy use and with the potential for up to 40% energy reduction. Yet selling energy efficiency to SMEs is notoriously hard. Rebecca Lane explains the innovation taking place in this area.
The Government recently committed the UK to a Net Zero carbon emissions target to tackle climate change. Yet that commitment is dependent on the consent of the British public. The people have a veto on Net Zero argues Kathryn Chambers.
As part of the Innovating to Net Zero project funded by Innovate UK, we surveyed over 2,000 people and conducted focus groups to understand public perception on climate change and attitudes towards actions to tackle it.
Scottish energy firm Biskit Controls has become the latest business to begin demonstrating an innovation in the Energy System Catapult’s 100-home Living Lab.
Two hundred and twelve companies have been identified by Energy Systems Catapult following feedback from the sector in the first scoping of the UK’s Digital Energy Landscape.
In an industry first, two British companies have successfully trialled selling ‘heat-as-as-service’, in a move that experts believe will pave the way for the low carbon retrofit revolution.
Energy Systems Catapult has announced its partnership with Smart Home Expo 2020, taking place on 17-18 March 2020 at Birmingham’s NEC.
