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 Energy White Paper launched in December was designed to present a vision for how government intends to make the transition to a Net Zero energy system by 2050. This insight article focuses specifically on the impact for Smart Local Energy Systems (SLES).
In this event, we’ll launch our new report – Enabling Smart Local Energy Systems: Finance & Investment. Join us on the 20th May 2021!
Join us on May 18th 2021 for the Local Energy Systems Scottish Industry Network (LESSIN) first engagement wave kick-off event.
The Energy Data Management Canvas was developed to support Smart Local Energy System projects and guide the user through the process of putting together an appropriate data management plan, understand the overall picture and ask the right questions.
To achieve the 2050 Net Zero target, 5.5 million socially rented homes need to be decarbonised. These homes represent a diverse portfolio of property types, and tenants with different needs, therefore a range of solutions will be required. This research provides insight on the drivers and challenges for social housing providers and the potential opportunities for Smart Local Energy System (SLES) services to help them meet their targets.
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.
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.
