An essential partner for zero carbon strategies, action plans and access to the latest innovations that accelerate Net Zero
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.

Collaborate with us
Supporting government, local authorities and innovators to create the new policies, markets, business models and technologies we need to deliver Net Zero.
Modern Energy Partners
Modern Energy Partners (MEP) was a two-year, £20million innovation pilot exploring how to decarbonise 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.
Energy Systems Catapult collaboration with Places for People on an Innovator Challenge to identify SMEs developing products and services targeted at Zero Carbon Smart Buildings and Estates, to receive tailored business incubation and acceleration support.
Julie Alexander, Director of Technology & Innovation at Places for People said: “Climate change is the most pressing challenge of our time, and with the construction sector and buildings being the most prolific polluters.”
“Engaging with the supply chain is the starting point. We want to identify technologies and business models we can deploy that are effective, and deliverable.”
Places for People were focused on developing interoperability across systems, using intelligent infrastructure to help them manage demand and supply and identifying new business models that will allow deployment at scale.
Seven SMEs were identified with each working with the Catapult and Places for People to develop their innovations.
