The Department Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy commissioned Energy Systems Catapult to review how innovation could enable low income and vulnerable (LIV) consumers to participate in a smart, flexible energy market.
The Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Committee was one of six select committees of the House of Commons (joining Environmental Audit; Housing, Communities and Local Government; Science and Technology; Transport; and Treasury) to support Climate Assembly UK, a citizens’ assembly on combatting climate change and achieving the pathway to net zero carbon emissions.
The Environmental Audit Committee is conducting an overarching inquiry looking at technological innovations which could contribute to tackling climate change. This session considers the role of community energy projects (schemes that are wholly owned and/or controlled by communities or through partnership with commercial or public sector partners).
The Energy Revolution Integration Service (ERIS) is keen to explore the social housing sector to understand how decisions are made and the drivers and barriers to installation of innovative technology in social housing. This webinar introduces the perspectives of those involved to improve the understanding of this market.
