Building for 2050 - research into low carbon, low-cost, new build housing

Tuesday October 26th, 10am-12pm BST

The Building for 2050 project, led by multi-disciplinary consultancy AECOM, is a major project funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). Its purpose is to identify the drivers, attitudes, barriers and challenges relating to the large-scale delivery and uptake of low cost, low carbon housing in England and Wales. It considers both the pull and push factors relating to delivery of housing fit for the future. Increasingly, the numbers of such homes being built will contribute to the ambitious targets within the UK Clean Growth Strategy and reduce energy use and bills for residents, while delivering attractive and comfortable homes.

We would welcome your attendance at a final project webinar on the on 26th October, to hear the findings and recommendations of the project, while also presenting an opportunity for the representatives of the wider sector to provide feedback to the project team and BEIS. Observations from the design and construction stages and analysis of the performance, together with the opinions provided, will help inform the steps required to accelerate the uptake of low cost, low carbon homes in the UK.

Social comparisons: the challenges with many of today’s tools, and how to build compelling solutions that engage customers

Social or peer comparisons are used in ~30% of more advanced energy insights apps in Europe today. But current solutions could do more to better engage residential customers. In this webinar, hosted by Delta-EE’s Energy Insights + team, we will be sharing recent research highlights and new thinking in how to develop social comparison tools to bring sustained engagement and behaviour change. In this webinar, our team will discuss:
• What social comparison tools are and how they work
• What the key challenges are in designing compelling social comparisons tools
• How four key design elements should seamlessly weave together to create a solution to drive customer engagement and energy efficiency.

The energy transition in 2021: entering a new era


The Future of Flexibility, featuring SmartEN

The 2020s will be pivotal for the development of flexibility to support the energy transition. This webinar, co-hosted by Delta-EE & SmartEN, will comprise of 3 sessions lasting 35 minutes each.

1. EU Regulations -  With the announcement of the Fit for 55 package following closely behind the Recovery Plan for Europe, & ongoing implementation of the Clean Energy for All Europeans package, EU policies to support & fund the energy transition are not in short supply. This session outlines key measures & assess progress.

2. Future of flex markets -  The growth of both large & small scale renewables will bring challenges to grid management, increasing the need for faster acting & local flex services, but new distributed assets will be capable of providing flexibility, if they can participate in markets & their costs justify the investment. This session focuses on the emerging system needs, how TSOs outside the European Synchronous Grid are responding to the fall in inertia, & the growing role of eMobility.

3. The Evolution of Networks - Implementation of the regulations & accommodation of new assets is leading to a more active role for network operators, while some consumers are taking matters into their own hands via islanded microgrids & energy communities. This session assessed the changing role of DSOs, coordination with TSOs via development of a Network Code for flexibility, & the emergence of energy communities.

European EV Charging: State of the Market & Future Trends

The last 18 months has seen unprecedented change and rapid developments across the European electric vehicle (EV) and charging sectors. The European Commission has announced their ‘Fit for 55’ package, requiring all new cars to be zero-emission from 2035. Vehicle manufacturers are doubling down on their electrification strategies, pivoting away from internal combustion engines. And car owners are choosing to go electric in ever greater numbers.

But will the charging infrastructure keep pace with the vehicles?

In this webinar, hosted by Delta-EE’s EV Team, we’ll be presenting the latest highlights from our EV Charging Research Service. Join our experts as we discuss:

  • The key takeaways from our 3rd annual European EV Owner Survey: Where are EV drivers charging their cars?
  • Our updated EV forecasts to 2030: What has changed in the last 12 months?
  • The evolving EV charging mix in the next 5 years: How can chargepoints keep up with the growth of EVs?
  • Our opinions on ‘Trends to Watch’ in 2022

The State of the New Energy Market - What progress has been made in 2020 in the transition from old to new energy?

Despite the COVID-19 outbreak, the new energy market in Europe is progressing faster: customer spend in 2020 has increased by 53%, compared to 46% in 2019. This webinar from Delta-EE’s New Energy Business Model Service presents key market metrics and evidence of the shift from selling energy as a commodity to selling new energy products and services. We will cover a broad range of product areas, such as eMobility, New Heating, Storage or Smart Buildings – both in the C&I and residential segments - and will provide deep-dives into these different markets, including the presentation of successful propositions and market activities.

Where might electrification win the battle for decarbonisation of heating and hot water over the next decade?

Which geographies and market segments are most attractive for electrification today and why? How is the evolving policy landscape across Europe creating opportunities – and threats – to electrification? How will decarbonisation of gas or the emerging flexibility market affect the electrification opportunity? Which electric solutions will be the winners, where, and why? Join us as we discuss the outlook for electrification of heating and hot water in some of the most hotly contested battlegrounds for decarbonisation of heat in Europe, drawing on highlights from our recent research under the Electrification of Heat Service.


Opportunities for Local Energy Systems in Commerce and Industry

Most people are familiar with Local Energy Systems such as energy communities which address the needs of households. This webinar will explore the opportunities for Local Energy Systems in the C&I sectors and will present case studies showcasing examples of C&I Local Energy Systems. It will illustrate different applications and business models such as energy communities, collective self-consumption, and microgrids.

What can DSOs learn from the practises used to integrate renewables in the UK and the Netherlands?

DSOs are facing an ongoing challenge: They need to ensure the quality of electricity supply, while at the same time facilitate the energy transition by allowing an increasingly large volume of renewable energy into their networks. This webinar will look at what those challenges to the quality of supply look like and what are some of the solutions deployed by DSOs in the UK and the Netherlands, two of the leading countries in Europe with regards to the energy transition.

What DSOs need to know about transactive energy

Transactive energy is about using economic mechanisms to balance supply and demand, potentially across the whole electricity system, while meeting customers needs. In this webinar we will explore the drivers and enablers bring the topic of transactive energy into the spotlight today, how the energy system could evolve under transactive energy and what can this transition means for DSOs.

The top 10 use cases of real-time energy data

Interest in real-time energy data is intensifying in Europe as it overcomes key data processing challenges with smart meter data around data timeliness, granularity as well as availability in some countries. In this webinar we will explore leading use cases in the residential market and answer key questions, including:
• How developed is the consumer-facing real-time energy data market in Europe?
• What are the 10 leading use cases of real-time energy data?
• How can they be used to drive customer engagement?
