Managing domestic energy assets for the benefit of households and networks
Homes of the future will increasingly have multiple energy assets such as electric vehicles (EVs), , solar PV and battery storage systems. The MADE (Multi Asset Demand Execution) project is all about understanding how to manage these multiple energy assets in a way that is both beneficial to the homeowner and the energy networks.
The UK has an opportunity to incorporate smart technology and Internet of Things (IoT) into its physical, energy and transport infrastructure, to improve public services and the overall quality of life for its citizens. Over the past few years, the National Government and UK Local Authorities (LA) have been taking proactive steps to implement and support this smart city transition, with key cities such as Bristol, London and Manchester pledging carbon neutrality by 2050 or earlier.
City-wide and integrated approach
Demand side response as an effective approach to shift peak load and reduce network congestion, has been perceived as a promising trend for energy management and supply.
Residential demand response (DR) is starting to attract widespread attention, following on from steady growth in commercial and industrial demand response. We explore how developed residential DR is, and the size and nature of the opportunity.
Matching supply with customer demand is a similar challenge for traditional electricity network players and those entering the world of eMobility.
Electricity grids are designed to accommodate peak electricity demand so that the lights stay on during that coldest of frosty evenings in mid-winter. At the same time, car companies are exploring how to bring their brand-new electric vehicles to a market where customers expect to drive that one long-distance journey to visit relatives each year without running out of fuel.
With electric vehicles making an increasing impact at the forefront of the energy transition, it makes sense to consider the impact of electric vehicle fleets and the value chain of fleet EV charging that businesses can take advantage of. In advance of the team’s upcoming webinar, we spoke to Delta-ee electric vehicle expert Alex Lewis-Jones to learn more about this research.
How do you define a fleet?
Earlier this year, my colleague Philippa Hardy wrote about the launch of OVO Energy’s Vehicle-2-Grid charger. This Vehicle-2-Grid (V2G) charger is set to be used in project Sciurus, one of eight Innovate UK V2G demonstration projects launched this year. From this summer, the projects will begin distributing thousands of these units across the UK, as the largest ever deployment of V2G technology across Europe.
While exciting and poised to revolutionise electricity markets, V2G remains at this demonstration phase rather than being fully ‘commercialised’. We recently reviewed the current status of this V2G market and in this blog we share some key findings.
