Objectives
  • This 5m project aims to accelerate the development of a consumer-orientated Home Energy Management System (HEMS) to give insight into consumer energy use, building and heating system performance providing a secure and flexible platform that will enable others to test and develop new energy services
  • The project aims to accelerate the development of a consumer-orientated Home Energy Management System (HEMS) product with mass market appeal
Abstract

The ETI commissioned the HEMS & ICT Market project to undertake an in depth study and assessment of HEMS along with what data, processes and controls andpotential additional services enabled via a linked ICT system. The project delivers key insights and findings in terms of potential future offerings and capabilities of these products along with market assessment information. The aim of the project was to characterise the existing market for HEMS and ICT systems and to quantify themarket/commercial opportunities for future HEMS and ICT propositions for both consumer and business.

ETIs research highlights that a Home Energy Management System (HEMS) should be a key component of a future smart energy system, but given the fact that most consumers do not willingly engage with their energy system any product solutions need to be consumer focused if they are to be effective. Therefore this project to design an advanced HEMS is a core component of the ETIs Smart Systems and Heat programme (now delivered by the Energy Systems Catapult) to make energy and heat consumption more consumer focused.

As part of the two year project, the system that is developed will be installed and tested in homes during the winter of 2016 and the results analysed to give an insight into consumer patterns, their electricity and gas use and the building and heating system performance. This will provide a significant dataset of consumer behaviours, energy use and building characterisation to develop further future products. Providing a secure and scalable platform will also help to integratemore appliances in the home and allow valuable services and applications to be developed, deployed andmanaged.

How many undocumented children live in London?
Estimating the numbers of migrants in the UK is notoriously difficult, especially those with an irregular migration status who may not be counted in official government statistics. It is not for nothing that the task has been described as counting the uncountable. However, information about the population of children and young people who are not…20/01/20

SSH2: Introduction to Heat as a Service - Stuart Brennan
Heat as a Service is a new model for how businesses sell heating. Consumers who buy Heat as a Service choose how much to spend on the experience they want - feeling warm and comfortable when and where they want in their homes - instead of paying for kilowatt hours of energy.The post SSH2: Introduction to Heat as a Service appeared first on ESC.

Devolving power: strategic choices for the future Net Zero energy system - Parm Nagra
The UK has made great progress in decarbonising electricity over the past decade. Tackling transport and heat will be next, where the potential of digitalisation will be crucial. Policymakers face a raft of challenges. Energy Systems Catapult believes the architecture of the energy system requires a rethink. Strategy and Performance Director Guy Newey explains.\nThe post Devolving power: strategic choices for the future Net Zero energy system appeared first on Energy Systems Catapult.
