To coincide with World EV Day, Energy Systems Catapult has given innovators access to unique
The Energy Technologies Institute’s Nuclear Cost Drivers (ETI NCD) full technical report is the culmination of a project to demonstrates a credible path for nuclear energy to become a competitive Net Zero solution alongside renewable energy.
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.
Three locations and three delivery contractors have been announced to install electric heat pumps into 750 homes for the £14.6m Electrification of Heat Demonstration project being managed by Energy Systems Catapult.
Energy Systems Catapult welcomes the opportunity to respond to a review of the purpose and performance of CfDs alongside development of the industries involved, the challenges they face, particularly with respect to present and future market conditions.
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’.
Digitalisation for Net Zero assesses the potential of digital technology to transform the energy system, including real-world case studies being developed by UK innovators.
Energy from Waste (EfW) plants are on track to emit around 20 Mte CO2 per year in the near future, with existing, proposed and under-construction facilities. Preliminary analysis on the potential of fitting Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage to EfW plants, show the cost of the technology as a means of emissions abatement is competitive with other industrial abatement options.
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.
Decarbonising heat is key to achieving Net Zero, and innovators have a vital role to play. Here is our overview of the decarbonisation challenge and how we can tackle it through low carbon home heating innovation.
