Assess your digital readiness to navigate to Net Zero

Transforming the UK energy system for Net Zero, will be driven as much by the growing market for digitalisation and data, as by legislated carbon reduction targets.

After leading the Energy Data Taskforce for the UK Government and the follow-on Energy Data Taskforce, Energy Systems Catapult realised the need to develop comprehensive assessment framework for determining the digital fitness of energy sector businesses – akin to technology readiness levels – as the energy system becomes increasingly digitalised.

  • Digital Energy Fitness Assessment – measures the digital readiness of energy sector businesses across five categories:
    • Digital Infrastructure
    • Technology
    • Operations
    • Insight & Value-Add
    • Culture.

Case Studies

Supporting an investment pack

Equiwatt incentivises consumers to save energy at peak times through an app-based rewards scheme, by using smart meter data to monitor household energy use and automatically turn-off appliances to reduce demand during peak times.

The Newcastle-based innovator needed help preparing for an investment round and to scale up their customer base.

Energy Systems Catapult through our Energy Launchpad carried out a Digital Energy Fitness Assessment, along with reviews of their Business Model, their Policy and Regulatory landscape, Consumer Insight and support with investor readiness.

Equiwatt found the inclusion of an independent Digital Energy Fitness Assessment was a crucial factor in helping secure over £300,000 in investment to progress scale up plans through a funding round involving the North East Venture Fund.
