This blog, as part of the Rethinking Electricity Markets project, describes a framework methodology and metrics that can be used to estimate the full set of cost and benefits associated with a wide range of low/zero carbon technologies, including generation, storage, interconnection, demand reduction and demand response.
A world-first, energy innovation ecosystem, the Whole Energy Systems Accelerator (WESA), is a step closer following a collaboration agreement between the Living Lab at the Energy Systems Catapult and PNDC.
The UK wants to be a global leader in the fight against climate change, and it can take a massive step forward this year by increasing the ambition of the new UK Emissions Trading System.
This is the third in a series of six policy briefs setting out our current thinking on policies for decarbonising buildings over the next two decades as outlined in ‘Six Steps to Zero Carbon Buildings’ and the accompanying ‘Towards an enduring policy framework to decarbonise buildings’.
The Energy White Paper launched in December was designed to present a vision for how government intends to make the transition to a Net Zero energy system by 2050. This insight article focuses specifically on the impact for Smart Local Energy Systems (SLES).
Energy Systems Catapult is calling for the creation of an economy-wide ‘Carbon Regulator’ to oversee monitoring, reporting, and verification of greenhouse gas emissions reduction and removal across the economy.
This report makes the case for a new ‘Carbon Regulator’ to oversee accurate and coherent monitoring, reporting, and verification of greenhouse gas emissions reduction and removal across the economy.
This consultation looks to ensure standards, both in energy efficiency and in overheating, as determined by the Building Regulations, are ambitious enough to put us on the right track to meet the 2050 Net Zero carbon emissions target and to adapt to rising temperatures over the coming years.
The Department for Education and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy commissioned Energy Systems Catapult to carry out a short investigation with the aim of identifying the principal challenges and opportunities associated with decarbonising the English school estate – which is responsible for a quarter of carbon emissions from the public sector estate.
Head of Modern Energy Partners, Christine St John Cox, is speaking at the Energy and Sustainability in the Public Sector conference on the 13th May 2021.
Christine St John Cox will be a keynote speaker at the Public Sector Estates Conference alongside Stuart Burrows from the Office of Government Property on 20th May.
The government needs to get out of the way to enable innovators to accelerate the shift to a carbon-free electricity grid well before 2050, according to a new report by Energy Systems Catapult. Rethinking Electricity Markets calls for a new wave of reforms to create a zero carbon electricity grid that works for consumers.
