Will energy communities replace conventional energy suppliers?

Wednesday 3rd March, 11am GMT

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.

C&I Energy as a Service: What is the opportunity and how to capture it?

Thursday 18th March, 10am GMT

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?

Hybrid heat pumps in Europe: why they could be a key solution in the decarbonisation puzzle

More attention than ever is being focussed on improving Europe’s existing buildings & tackling carbon emissions from heating and cooling. Multiple technology solutions exist to improve heating efficiency and decarbonise home comfort. But pure electrification faces possible challenges dealing with winter peaks, and decarbonised gases - while promising - are currently a long way off being available in the quantities needed. Natural gas use is coming under increasing pressure, but is unlikely to phased out any time soon. Within this mix, hybrid heat pumps can offer the best of both worlds: making use of low carbon electricity & reducing natural gas use today, while alleviating grid constraints & keeping the door open for decarbonised gases in the future. Join the Delta-EE Heat team for this webinar where we will present our views & insights on:

  • Where the market is at for hybrid heat pumps in Europe today
  • What benefits hybrid heat pumps can bring, to end-users and to commercial players in the energy system
  • How long the window of opportunity might be for hybrid heat pumps in Europe

Electric buses: the dawn of opportunities for the electricity sector

Why is the city eBus market taking off? What are leading-edge innovators doing in this space? And, when should you be getting involved?

Transitioning to a sustainable energy future – what are the opportunities for industrial and commercial businesses?

The energy system is currently undergoing a transformation of increasing decarbonisation, decentralisation and digitalisation. This means the way in which energy is generated, used and managing is changing and this will profoundly change the way businesses engage with energy. Join Delta-EE and Alpiq for this webinar to find out:

• What does this mean for industrial and commercial businesses?
• How will services in the new energy world meet their needs?
• How can businesses act now to maximise opportunities?

Gamification – how can it intensify energy customer engagement?

As the energy transition accelerates, energy companies are focussing more and more on customer engagement to pivot from commodity-based sales strategies towards energy services. Applying game thinking and mechanics to improve customer experience and boost business performance is a relatively new customer engagement concept in energy. With guest speaker Jeremy Woolley, Head of Utility Projects at GenGame, this webinar will explore:

  • How is gamification driving energy customer engagement?
  • What are the challenges of bringing gamified energy insights solutions to market and how are they overcome?
  • How can gamification support long-term customer engagement initiatives?

Will energy communities replace conventional energy suppliers?

Energy communities have the potential to transform customer attitudes and the way they engage with the energy system. Peer to peer energy trading models, facilitated by blockchain are also challenging the status quo, while collective self-consumption is stimulating growth of energy communities across Europe. What would it take from energy suppliers to adapt to this new market paradigm?

This webinar will explore:

  • How enthusiastic are consumers about investing in energy communities?
  • What business models are emerging?
  • How will this impact the existing energy supply industry?

Residential EV Charging: how do customers charge and what is the market response?

The rise of EV adoption across Europe is leading to a step change in how electricity is consumed at home. Delta-EE presents its analysis from its EV Owner Survey 2020 and other research to explain how EV owners are charging EVs at home, what this is costing them, and how the sector is reacting to this fast evolving customer segment.
