Why We Do It
National Grid infrastructure is unfit for future purpose, with power wasted as it travels large distances in one direction. Intermittent power sources such as wind and solar, the growth of electric vehicles and the transition from gas to electric heating is putting pressure on grid stability. The recent energy blackouts highlight the urgency of the problem.
Ageing and complex-to-manage infrastructure requires new ways of managing and optimising the grid network in order to respond to the climate emergency and meet UK Government zero carbon targets by 2050.
The increasing economic, social, and environmental challenges associated with energy security and resilience, climate change, population growth and migration along with rising demand as a result of global development, leads to instability, unsustainable and unprecedented supply price increases and uncertainty across International Energy Markets.
In creating our Digital Energy Platform, we can respond to the climate emergency, reduce the cost of energy through demand management and provide savings for consumers and businesses who are paying the price on multiple fronts as the costs continue to rise.
