2018-2019: The pivotal years for New Energy

Delta-ee may have been early to the conversation. We started talking 10-15 years ago about decentralised energy, customers not meter points; who has needs, wants and preferences, services beyond commodity.

One of these developments is the recent launch by OVO Energy (one of the larger UK suppliers outside the traditional ‘big 6’) of three new 'OVO' branded products: a home battery, an EV smart charger and what OVO claims is the world's first residential V2G consumer unit.

Unlocking the value of flexibility for the electrification of heat

Demand-side response and flexibility are becoming increasingly important – this is evident in the UK following BEIS’ announcement of its new plan to upgrade the UK’s energy system and give homes and businesses more control over their energy use. The opportunities for innovation and investment in the energy sector, therefore, are vast.

Smart electrically-driven heating is a potentially valuable field in which to invest, but to what extent will customers and the energy system benefit, and how can these benefits be unlocked?
