Policy Makers and Associations

Delta-EE helps a range of policy makers and shapers including government departments, associations, NGOs, and agencies, to understand the complexity of the energy transition, bringing together the knowledge from across many sectors which is required to develop coherent and robust policy options.

We have supported policy makers in several areas to understand the changing customer and how new types of services and products will impact the way that customers use energy. This draws together our market research and forecasting with a technical understanding of the energy system.

We help decision-makers understand changing energy demands under a range of policy scenarios reflecting different commercial and regulatory drivers, strategic options around the decarbonisation of heat and transport, sectors to target and the impacts of policy making on the existing energy system.

We assess national capability in different technical areas to map export niches and identify suitable markets to develop new trading options, and review national and international best practice across a number of technical and commercial areas.

The energy transition presents a major challenge to policymakers, requiring connections to be made between historically disparate sectors. Previously, the top-down system could be considered in a number of separate silos, but interconnectivity within and across energy systems requires a much more holistic view.

Drivers for energy now often come from outside of the traditional energy sector, and opportunities presented to customers by new services will increasingly challenge the existing policy approaches.

As established experts in this space, Delta-EE can really support organisations in navigating this challenge.

Benchmarking MVHR product portfolio

Delta-EE helped the client assess (1) how their products compare to their key competitors, and (2) what additional functionalities (if any) may be required, especially by specifiers. The overall aim was to increase the client’s market share. The report was fed into the client’s decision-making process in their company headquarters in Japan.

Business Models to accelerate fuel cell deployment

Delta-EE led a consortium of over 50 key stakeholders in the European energy sector to examine and define the business models and financing arrangements which could enable the vast potential of the stationary fuel cell market in Europe to be unlocked. The work involved a combination of bilateral stakeholder interviews and workshops, detailed techno-economic modelling and the completion of risk assessments for 100 potential business models. The work concluded by providing 18 major recommendations to industry, which were supported with 29 targeted follow-on steps.

Electrification of heat and the impact on Scotland’s electricity network

Delta-EE provided insight into Scotland’s heating technology market with uptake forecasts up to 2030, detailed load-profile analysis of various energy demand segments, and modelling of the impact on the electricity grid and the associated costs of grid upgrades due to electrification of heat. As part of this project, we broke down Scotland’s building stock by property type, local authority and network regions.
