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.

Why should the UK be investing in a Living Lab made up of 100 existing homes upgraded to become digitally connected smart-homes? And how is this relevant to Net Zero? Rebecca Sweeney explains.
The Living Lab has relaunched for innovation trials after undergoing significant improvements over the six-months of lockdown – including a new digital integration platform.
