Artificial Intelligence (AI) is transforming the energy sector. In this white paper we highlight key areas of impact both now and those that need to be transformed in the next five years.
At Energy Systems Catapult we work with a wide range of stakeholders to understand and communicate approaches to innovation and best practice within Energy, Machine Learning, Data Science and AI.
‘Digital Energy Week’ runs from the 21st – 25th June 2021 and showcases Energy Systems Catapult’s thought leadership, expertise and offerings around digital and data to help transform the energy system. Register your interest today.
A new Energy Digitalisation Taskforce (EDiT) is being launched today by the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy, is partnership with Ofgem and Innovate UK, to continue the Government’s focus on modernising the energy system to unlock flexibility and drive clean growth towards net zero emissions by 2050.
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.
Innovative companies developing smart home products or services that incorporate electric vehicle (EV) charging will benefit from a new offering in Energy Systems Catapult’s real-world test environment – the Living Lab.
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.
Edinburgh-based innovator Amp X is set to trial an autonomous, digital energy assistant in 50 Living Lab homes run by Energy Systems Catapult, aiming to help households to reduce the cost and carbon intensity of their energy and ultimately lead to peer-to-peer trading.
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 Energy Launchpad International will select up to eight SMEs aiming to export smart energy innovations to receive acceleration support in preparation for a virtual mission to India and Thailand. The India & Thailand Innovator Challenge is supported by the Prosperity Fund at the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), and in partnership with the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) and the Department for International Trade (DIT).
The Electric Vehicle Energy Taskforce made 21 proposals in January 2020 to ensure the energy system is able to accelerate the mass take-up of electric vehicles,. Energy Systems Catapult was central to analysing those proposals and recommending EVET focus on 10 high priority actions.
Seven of the UK’s most cutting-edge innovators in Smart Zero Carbon Building Solutions have been selected for a rigorous business acceleration programme at Energy Systems Catapult.
The Living Lab has relaunched for innovation trials after undergoing significant improvements over the six-months of lockdown – including a new digital integration platform.
