Local Energy Systems have the potential to provide resilience in a number of ways. Microgrids are well known for their ability to maintain energy supplies in the event of grid failure even during natural disasters, and can also support the wider energy system. Energy Communities on the other hand whilst not necessarily providing physical resilience, can often promote societal resilience by supporting local enterprises and citizens. This webinar explores the various ways in which types of LES provide resilience both in Europe and overseas, and explains why resilience is only set to increase in importance over the coming years.

Heat as a service is key to making the decarbonisation of heat affordable for customers. In our latest webinar on this topic we will be answering some frequently asked questions about heat as a service, including:

  1. What are the commercial benefits?
  2. How can supply chains deliver it?
  3. How are companies financing it?
  4. What if customers stop paying?
  5. What is the outlook?

We will share examples of business models, findings from customer research, and our views of how this market will evolve.

We are pleased to be joined on this webinar by Iain McKechnie, Director of Strategic Programmes at the Advanced Services Group of Aston Business School. The Advanced Services Group helps manufacturing and technology-innovating firms to embed research methods, tools and frameworks into their operations and to assist them in the design of their advanced services.

Join this webinar to find out:

• How has the overall European energy storage market developed over the last 12 months?
• What are the trends in three major energy storage segments shaping the market and how will this change in 2021?
• How is European policy affecting the market today and shaping it into the future?

During the webinar we will share highlights from the 5th edition of the European Market Monitor for Energy Storage (EMMES 5.0) which is being published in March 2021 and will be available for purchase.

EMMES is the definitive analysis of European energy storage markets, produced by leading new energy research consultancy Delta-EE, in close partnership with the European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE).

There is a buzz about the “Energy as a service” (EaaS) business model in the commercial and industrial energy sector. Interest is being driven by the increasing costs and complexity of C&I energy provision, Corporate Social Responsibility and regulation and incentives. Already in Europe and North America, EaaS is a multi-billion euro market. In an upcoming webinar, the New Energy Business Model Service will assess the opportunity EaaS presents for energy services providers and investors – and discuss potential ways to capture it. Key questions addressed will include:

  • What is Energy as a Service and how does it apply to the C&I sectors?
  • How big is the opportunity for energy services providers and investors?
  • What are possible strategies for succeeding with this business model?

Register and join us on 18th March to watch the webinar live.

As the European grid transitions to new energy, it is becoming more complex and volatile. We are becoming increasingly dependent on a resilient electricity system for mobility, heat and home working. Conventional approaches to resilience are often costly and polluting; innovative alternatives including microgrids are being already being explored and encouraged by regulators across Europe. We can therefore expect to see significant growth in microgrids providing resilience in the coming years. This growth in microgrids can and should be used to enhance system performance and facilitate innovative business models including those represented by citizen engagement.

Following our whitepaper “5 things that investors should know”, we have decided to help energy companies at the start of another tough year by providing key insights from our European customer research.

For an effective energy transition the use of renewable energy sources is not enough. A wide adoption of energy efficient technologies and behavioural change is needed to unlock the real potential of distributed renewable energy sources.

However, innovation and technologies alone are not enough to convince energy customers to buy products that would accelerate the transition. Here is why.
