On 12 February, the Energy Technologies Institute launched two studies focusing on linking localised energy generation with localised energy use. The ETI as the organisation tasked by the Government with developing the technologies that will help the UK meet its 2050 carbon reduction targets, believes that distributed energy (DE) systems could make a valuable contribution to improving energy efficiency and delivering CO2 savings in the UK. The Macro DE project will study energy demand and supply profiles for sites such as local services, hospitals and business parks. The Micro DE project will focus on the residential sector, modelling the potential impact and operation of technologies in households. To read the press release, click here.
