Clean heat and energy efficiency workforce assessment

The Scottish Government has a statutory climate change target to reduce carbon emissions by 75% by 2030 and reach net-zero emissions by 2045. Achieving these goals will require significant changes in how homes and non-domestic buildings in Scotland are heated and their energy efficiency improved. The supply chain in Scotland also needs to be fit-for-purpose […]

Electrification of Heat – Case studies on Heat Pump installation experiences

Delta-EE worked with the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and Energy Systems Catapult to create heat pump case studies to help people better understand the consumer journey and user experience of living with a heat pump. The Electrification of Heat (EoH) demonstration project, funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial […]

Report Summary: Hydrogen as an Electricity System Asset

Hydrogen h2 renewable energy production

National Grid ESO commissioned Delta-EE to complete an analysis of the potential impacts the burgeoning hydrogen market could have on the electricity system and the implications for FES 2022. This Summary Report highlights some of the key findings and conclusions from the 6-month project, completed in May 2022. A timely piece of work, the project […]

New Markets for Flexibility from Grid Forming Capabilities

The Flexibility Research Service has published a report on New Markets for Flexibility from Grid Forming Capabilities, including information on the below: The electricity system must maintain a constant balance between generation and demand. Electricity system operators benefit from the inertia which has traditionally been provided by large fossil fuel generators (e.g. coal and gas) to […]

This report provides a high-level summary of 30 European markets and their demand side flexibility market activity. We answered the following questions: Which countries have open and accessible value streams for DSF? To what extent can assets access local flexibility, be that through energy communities or distribution system flexibility? Which TSOs spend the most on […]

The European Market Monitor on Energy Storage is the definitive analysis of energy storage markets. Delta-EE produces this report in close partnership with EASE, the European Association for Storage of Energy. The report is based upon primary research with leading companies and stakeholders; market data that companies can rely on; analysis of EU policy and […]

Evidence review for hydrogen for heat in buildings

Hydrogen is one of only a handful potential heat decarbonisation routes which offer a mass-market solution. This project was commissioned to help build a clear evidence base, using existing literature relating to all aspects of the use of hydrogen to heat buildings, including supporting infrastructure and costs. Lessons gained thus far from key projects have been […]

Heat pump use in Scotland – an evidence review

Heat pumps are an efficient way of producing heat from electricity; they operate by capturing the latent heat in the air, ground or water and using it for heating. Heat pumps are expected to play a significant role in decarbonising heat in Scotland; the Climate Change Committee has described them as a ‘low-regrets’ option, and they […]
