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.
Extreme Low Energy has developed low voltage power infrastructure systems that eliminate the waste of AC/DC conversion to run DC-powered electronic devices directly from DC renewable generation and storage. Energy Systems Catapult is helped ELe® to explore wider applications for their innovations through our Innovator Support Platform.
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.
