The Covid-19 pandemic may have caused disruption to some consumer energy projects. But for Energy System Catapult’s Living Lab, disruption has been minimal and innovation trials have continued uninterrupted over the past 15 months.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Flexibly-Responsive Energy Delivery project, led by Evergreen Smart Power, is testing a software platform that provides Demand Side Response (DSR) by integrating and managing energy technologies in real time, reacting to grid conditions to increase or reduce their electricity consumption. This report summarises consumer insights on electric vehicle charging and DSR based on five participants from the FRED project.
We’re offering free virtual ‘Meet the Experts’ sessions for our Living Lab now, to help UK businesses striving to accelerate their energy innovations to market.
This trial for the Energy Revolution Integration Service explored how smart heating controls may help vulnerable households afford the energy they need to be safe, healthy and comfortable.
Three locations and three delivery contractors have been announced to install electric heat pumps into 750 homes for the £14.6m Electrification of Heat Demonstration project being managed by Energy Systems Catapult.
