Multiple smart energy demonstrator projects launched across the UK
Four projects aimed at demonstrating that smart energy systems represent a viable option that can be successfully launched across the UK have officially announced by Energy and Clean Growth Minister Claire Perry, a recent news report has been able to suggest.
The £102.5 million Prospering from the Energy Revolution Challenge aims to provide cleaner, cheaper and more resilient energy through linking low carbon power, heating and transport technologies with energy storage and smart software to create intelligent local energy networks.
The government says the demonstrators will show how businesses can develop local energy approaches at scale, helping consumers and promoting economic growth.
One of the most interesting projects in this initiative, called the Smart Hub SLES in West Sussex, aims to integrate energy management across council housing, private residential properties, transport infrastructure and commercial properties.
Energy and Clean Growth Minister Claire Perry said: “We are at the start of a green revolution, as we move to more digital, data-driven smart systems that will bring us cleaner and cheaper energy.
“These projects, backed by government funding, are set to spark a transformation and change the way we interact with energy for the better as part of our modern Industrial Strategy.”
HeatingSave – an excellent energy efficiency and money-saving solution for organizations of all sizes
SME owners who’re particularly worried about the adverse effects energy price hikes might have on their bottom lines should seriously consider investing in a high-end solution designed specifically to help them optimize their energy consumption, and this is specifically where the HeatingSave Building Management System could help.
By using data coming from a variety of sources (boiler flow and return sensors, internal and external temperature sensors, occupancy sensors, humidity sensors, etc.), HeatingSave optimizes a building’s boiler-based central heating system and helps customers save anywhere between 20 and 30%+ on their bills.
HeatingSave is also approved to work and save fuel within the Energy Technology List, which is managed by the Carbon Trust on behalf of the Government. It is also approved by the Department of Energy & Climate Change and the Energy Savings Trust and was specified by the Building Research Establishment for the energy efficient homes retro-fit program, called The Greenhouse Project.
