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.
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.
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.
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.
The Electric Vehicle Energy Taskforce has made 21 key proposals to government and industry following an unprecedented collaboration including more than 350 organisations including many household names.

A collaboration between the Catapult and the Advanced Propulsion Centre, the aim of the Decarbonising Road Freight project was to explore pathways for reducing emissions from the freight sector with a focus on heavy goods vehicles (HGVs).
One hundred and eighty-four companies have been identified by Energy Systems Catapult in the first scoping of the UK’s Digital Energy Landscape. The Catapult is calling on digital energy businesses to scrutinise the landscape, decide if they have been correctly classified or identified at all, and engage with the Catapult’s Innovator Support Platform to suggest any changes or omissions.
Energy Systems Catapult provided modelling support to the project V2GB – Vehicle to Grid Britain – that was studying how to reward drivers who use their electric car batteries to support the UK’s power grid. The consortium consisted of Nissan Technical Centre Europe, Energy Systems Catapult, Cenex, Western Power Distribution, National Grid ESO, Moixa and Element Energy.
