- Research project to identify storage and control opportunities at an individual dwelling level in the UK
- Developed a segmented model of the UK housing stock
- Technology opportunities identified were examined in our Smart Systems and Heat programme
The project was a scoping and feasibility study to identify opportunities for micro-generation storage and control technology development at an individual dwelling level in the UK.
The study investigated the potential for reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions through Distributed Energy (DE) technologies. This was achieved through the development of a segmented model of the UK housing stock supplemented with detailed, real-time supply and demand energy-usage gathered from field trials of micro distributed generation and storage technology in conjunction with building control systems.
The outputs of this project fed into our Smart Systems and Heat programme.
