Sporadic funding is stifling net zero ambitions at the local level and should be replaced with a systematic approach to planning, funding, and powers, according to a new report by Energy Systems Catapult.
Energy Systems Catapult’s new report Enabling Smart Local Energy Systems: Finance and Investment has found that local authorities can play a pivotal role in delivering Net Zero by leveraging public funding to scale up the private finance needed, however new approaches are needed to do so effectively.
Energy Systems Catapult has explored new techniques for electricity price forecasts using supply-demand data to support the development of local energy market business models and innovation. The Probabilistic Day-Ahead Wholesale Price Forecasting report outlines a proof of concept for three potential forecasting models to the GB wholesale market and compares them to better understand their capabilities and limits for probabilistic price forecasting.
This event will identify challenges and opportunities for integration of digital and data into Local Energy Systems on June 15th 2021.
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.
A world-first, energy innovation ecosystem, the Whole Energy Systems Accelerator (WESA), is a step closer following a collaboration agreement between the Living Lab at the Energy Systems Catapult and PNDC.
This is the third 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’.
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.
The government needs to get out of the way to enable innovators to accelerate the shift to a carbon-free electricity grid well before 2050, according to a new report by Energy Systems Catapult. Rethinking Electricity Markets calls for a new wave of reforms to create a zero carbon electricity grid that works for consumers.
