Our bi-monthly EnergyREV newsletters bring together a range of blogs and news from the EnergyREV consortium and the wider PFER programme. You can read past editions below or get it sent straight to your inbox by signing up for our news updates.
March 2022 Newsletter 14
In our March newsletter EnergyREVs Principal Investigator Stephen McArthur sets the context for our final year as we work to maximise our impact around the net zero transition, as part of the wider Prospering from the Energy Revolution programme.
We have a range of reports and tools being released over the coming months. A report highlighting insights around the flexibility within smart local energy systems (SLES) was released this week which includes how to quantify the benefits it can bring for decarbonisation as well as how to make these benefits a reality. There is an update on the latest developments on the Catalogue of Projects on Energy Data platform as it moves towards an April launch and news on some of the international exchanges happening around the development of SLES. We also have emerging insights from the diverse world of local energy system pioneers within the UK, challenges and opportunities for campus scale energy systems, and some upfront highlights from research into ethics and artificial intelligence in energy transitions.

January 2022 Newsletter 13
Our latest newsletter is full of insights from the EnergyREV consortium and the wider work going on in the Prospering from the Energy Revolution (PFER) programme. You can find out more about EnergyREV’s shifting focus towards delivery and impact, including some new research areas funded through our Flex Fund. There is a sneak peak of a forthcoming heat decarbonisation report and an opportunity to sign up to its launch event, plus some wider heat insights from a decade of data on heat pump installations. We also have research news on user engagement and cyber-physical advances for enabling a full flexible energy system to develop. More widely, there are updates from two of PFER Demonstrations projects in Oxford and the design project in Girona, and we have a feature on the new PFER resource that enables you to explore all the PFER funded projects.

November 2021 Newsletter 12
Our November newsletter opens with some reflections on COP from EnergyREV’s Research Director Rebecca Ford discussing what it was really like to be at COP26 and how inspiring activities and knowledge sharing will help to drive forward change. We also have insights from three other EnergyREV researchers on their COP experiences, as well as a series of blogs looking a different aspects of smart local energy systems. Along with several news items on our ongoing research activity, the November newsletter is full of insights and actions on the transition to a low carbon future.

September 2021 Newsletter 11
Our September newsletter highlights opportunities for integrating and combining the findings from across Prospering from the Energy Revolution (PFER) to provide real evidence on the value and place for Smart Local Energy Systems (SLES). For EnergyREV, this includes integrating our activities and key insights from across our work package activities to drive novel and impactful outcomes, something we start to pull together in our Starting to Join the Dots report, that features in this newsletter. More widely, insights on skills and training, policy and regulation, and an update from the ReFLEX Orkney PFER demonstration project.
