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.
One of the key global investment trends over recent times has been the record growth of sustainable finance. Covid-19 has influenced this market as there is a clear drive to build back greener and fairer to support economic recovery.
Three-quarters of UK local authorities have now declared a climate emergency but a snap poll has suggested the majority have difficulty accessing the data they need to make informed and effective decisions that will support the development of local energy projects that are key to achieving Net Zero.
The Energy Revolution integration Service engaged with people actively developing Smart Local Energy Systems to gather insight into the main challenges and offer recommendations based on experience from other sectors and related research programmes.
We’re delivering the third of four local authority focused webinar-workshops on 2 February, putting a spotlight on the People and Skills challenges, tools and solutions available for local authorities to deliver Smart Local Energy Systems (SLES) developments in their local areas.
Smart Local Energy Systems are an emergent concept, both technically and commercially. This portfolio review is based upon analysis of outcomes from 11 concept designs as part of the Prospering from the Energy Revolution programme under the Industrial Strategy Clean Growth Fund.
Energy Revolution Integration Service (ERIS) is looking for information from potential tool providers for consideration for inclusion in their local authority driven Smart Local Energy Systems (SLES) Toolkit. Please review the Expression of Interest (EOI) and register for our webinar launch of the EOI on Thursday 29 October 2020.
Whether you are local authority involved in social housing or energy projects, a business owner or technology developer considering social landlords as a customer, a housing developer or social landlord wanting to improve your services to your residents, while at the same time creating new revenue streams and helping the environment. We are keen to better understand the motivations and challenges to installation of innovative low carbon technology in social housing.
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.
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’.
Ofgem commissioned Energy System Catapult and the Centre for Sustainable Energy to develop a methodology and initial set of quality standards that could be adopted as a framework for scaling up Local Area Energy Planning across Great Britain.
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.
