Navigating the nation to Net Zero

Achieving Net Zero carbon emissions will require efforts from both the bottom up and the top down.

Energy Systems Catapult’s whole systems approach is helping define and deliver the future energy system alongside government, regulators, academia, industry and innovators.

Whole system modelling considers the complex interactions of power, gas, heat, and transport and the different ways in which our energy might be supplied, managed and consumed in the future at a national, regional, local and individual building level.

By looking at the whole system, a collaborative environment of policy, regulation and investment can be encouraged where innovations progress more quickly from prototype to marketplace, creating low carbon economic growth.

Using the power of our four national whole system energy models to identify market opportunities, policy/regulatory choices and innovation priorities.

How we can help you...

Our independent, technology-agnostic, whole systems models help you identify investment choices, market opportunities, innovation priorities and policy/regulatory incentives.

Case Studies

Whole system scenario modelling

Good Energy commissioned Energy Systems Catapult to carry out whole system scenario modelling – with the specific constraints of allowing no nuclear power or fossil fuel energy supply – to determine if Net Zero by 2050 was still possible.

We utilised our Energy System Modelling Environment – which is a peer reviewed, least cost optimisation model. Plus our new ESME Flex – which provides a greater level of detail into how the energy system might function under Good Energy’s chosen scenarios.

The ESME Flex platform produces highly granular dispatch information and explores the different roles and responsibilities of energy technologies and services in 2050, on an hour-by-hour basis.

Good Energy used the modelling results to compile a report supporting their efforts to increase renewable energy generation and storage in the coming decades.
