The UK has made great progress in decarbonising electricity over the past decade. Tackling transport and heat will be next, where the potential of digitalisation will be crucial. Policymakers face a raft of challenges. Energy Systems Catapult believes the architecture of the energy system requires a rethink. Strategy and Performance Director Guy Newey explains.
The head of the Modern Energy Partnership programme at the Catapult, Christine St John Cox, is presenting at the Westminster Health Forum – Next steps for NHS estates – funding, infrastructure modernisation and optimisation, net-zero, and learning from the response to the pandemic, on 11 March 2021.
Energy Systems Catapult has been appointed to lead a Local Energy Systems Scottish Industry Network (LESSIN) and bring together manufacturers, project developers, technology companies and investors to cultivate the low carbon ecosystem in Scotland.
This is the second 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’.
Local Energy Asset Representation (LEAR) pulls together information on energy generation, storage and distribution assets, social factors like fuel poverty and characteristics like building types and local geography using data analysis and aspects of machine learning. It enables planners and innovators to strategically decide how they might deploy and grow low carbon businesses.
Energy Systems Catapult is launching an Innovator Challenge call providing acceleration support to innovative SMEs in collaboration with Climate-KIC and supported by Energy Capital part of the West Midlands Combined Authority.
A new report by Energy Systems Catapult has found Net Zero by 2050 is possible if the UK supports innovation and scale-up across three essential areas – Low Carbon Technology, Land Use and Lifestyle.
