Accelerating the integration of transport and energy

Integrating the transport and energy systems requires collaboration across government, regulation, industry, academia and innovation to achieve Net Zero at least cost.

in future energy networks, optimising vehicle propulsion systems, consumer perspectives, market and policy frameworks, the physical value chains required to deliver the energy, and the role of new generation technologies in transport decarbonisation.

Backed by world leading whole systems modelling and systems engineering, Energy Systems Catapult helps innovators large and small navigate the transition to Net Zero.

We offer specialist knowledge and practical experience in technology development and deployment, considering the technological, engineering, economic, regulatory and policy implications for innovations and investment decisions.

What we offer

Taking a whole systems approach to helping integrate the transport and energy sectors. with support from Energy Systems Catapult capabilities, tools and labs.

Case Studies

Energy Launchpad

Manchester-based Evergreen Smart Power are an innovative Virtual Power Plant business, aggregating and controlling domestic energy loads resulting from the decarbonisation of transport and heating to suit specific customer, market, generation and grid conditions.

Evergreen’s solution for electric vehicles (EVs) can respond to grid conditions, to spread charging over off-peak hours, reducing the 7kW load of chargers that would otherwise put strain on the network at peak times, while ensuring that EVs are sufficiently charged when needed. The solution also optimises other loads, such as heat pumps and electric heaters.

The Energy Launchpad focused on helping Evergreen develop their future roadmap through competitive landscaping, consumer insights/trial and detailed business model analysis.

Exploring Evergreen’s Value Proposition with our Business Model Innovation team to help Evergreen develop their business model using insights from Competitive Landscaping work. This examined alternative target markets and revenue streams. Outputs were developed to be used for pitches to future investors.

Following incubation support from Energy Launchpad, Energy Systems Catapult helped Evergreen develop and deliver a follow-on project called Flexibly-Responsive Energy Delivery with 250 consumers.
