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.
Energy Systems Catapult has incorporated air quality pollutant emissions into the Energy Systems Modelling Environment (ESME), to enable a whole systems scenarios to be modelled for decarbonisation and clean air. ESME is used to inform energy policy, innovation spending and other strategic analysis. Now, it can be used to systematically explore the co-benefits and trade-offs between these two agendas, including at a regional scale.
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.
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.
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.
Innovative housing association Bromford are joining our Living Lab to explore how smart heating can improve comfort, control and cost for households at risk of fuel poverty – while providing vital data on the thermal performance of homes.
