Innovate to accelerate property portfolios and complex sites to Net Zero

Energy System Catapult develops systematic, repeatable and scalable approaches to decarbonising commercial property portfolios and complex sites, such as university or hospital campuses.

We can help you and your staff identify and implement decarbonisation strategies and wider Net Zero projects, including approaches to evaluate change and develop blueprints for wider deployment.

Our independent, technology agnostic approach harnesses the best clean tech, digital insights and business model innovations to develop and deliver zero carbon strategies.

We also collaborate with a range of high-growth potential innovators through our Energy Launchpad. Commercial businesses can work with Energy Launchpad to identify the best innovators to deliver the right supply chain solutions for your business.

What we offer

Energy Systems Catapult can help to decarbonise business parks, campuses and other complex sites at least cost.

How to work with us

Energy Systems Catapult offers technical, commercial and policy expertise to drive Net Zero innovation across the whole energy system.

We are not-for-profit, independent and technology-agnostic – building a trusted track record of delivering thought leadership, collaborative R&D and commercial commissions – so are uniquely placed to take on the challenges that others cannot tackle.

We use our grant-funding to develop capabilities, tools and labs – from world-class Net Zero modelling and cutting-edge systems engineering, through to digital and data science and real-world innovation trials that drive start-ups to success.

Supporting, convening and advising government, academia, industry, local/regional authorities, investors and SMEs to create new markets that unleash innovation and define the pathway to Net Zero.

Collaborate with us

We work with partners from the public and private sectors to secure funding and collectively deliver the thought leadership and innovation projects that tackle the hardest challenges in the way to Net Zero.

Commission us

We offer technical, commercial and policy expertise through our independent evidence and insights to identify and deliver Net Zero innovation priorities. Then actively support clients to develop actionable plans for implementation.

Case Studies

Commission us

Modern Energy Partners (MEP) was a two-year, £20million innovation pilot exploring how to decarbonise complex campus-style sites across the public sector estate to help Government reduce carbon emission by 50% by 2032.

The project was a collaborative cross-departmental programme, coordinated and delivered by Energy Systems Catapult and funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and the Cabinet Office, with additional match funding from pathfinder sites.

MEP investigated a test bed of 42 sites responsible for over 4 million tCO2e carbon emissions – equating to 3.2% of Ministry of Defence (MOD), 13% of Ministry of Justice (MOJ) and 3.5% of NHS sites, including three pathfinder sites:

  • HM Sheppey Prison Cluster
  • HMS Collingwood – Royal Navy base
  • NHS Goole and District Hospital

MEP developed systematic, repeatable and scalable approaches to decarbonising sites. Firstly, the rapid deployment of data gathering technologies and techniques to appraise the net zero potential of sites – including installating telemetry across 23 sites.

Secondly, a range of tools and templates allowing sites to develop decarbonisation plans – including plans for 24 sites to reduce emissions on average by 70% by 2032. Thirdly, MEP carried out initial carbon reduction works at the three pathfinder sites – including installing 21,515 LEDs light bulbs and smart Building Management Systems that now control 176,990 m2 of buildings.
