The energy revolution in the UK is driving the transition away from the current centralised energy system to a more decentralised system that needs to be world-leading, local and smart.
Smart local energy systems aim to manage and balance energy supply, storage and use across all vectors (i.e. power, heating and transport). Research and innovation will allow these to be integrated and co-ordinated in ways that can significantly improve efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and deliver a wider range of social, environmental, and economic benefits.
The EnergyREV Consortium will carry out novel research in each of the following themes to provide solutions to deliver and scale up smart local energy systems.
