The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) is seeking partners for two projects launched as part of its £100million Smart Systems and Heat Programme.
The objective is to design a first of its kind Smart Energy System in the UK. Both projects are part of the first stage of the programme, which is focused on design methodology and system design through gaining a greater understanding of markets, technologies and consumer behaviour – both now and in the future.
These are research projects whereby the ETI wants to help identify which technologies require further development and establish how smart systems can operate commercially and cost-effectively.
The projects will complement a consumer behaviour study which the ETI is already undertaking in the programme to understand the dynamics of consumer demand.
