9.00am – 4.00pm, Wednesday 24th Sept, Lenton Firs House, University of Nottingham,
Overview: We are potentially at the beginning of a transition away from centralised generation to more energy self-sufficient Cities, towns and communities that generate and utilise an increasing proportion of their own energy through a mix of renewable sources.
Within this context the Energy Technologies Institute and the University of Nottingham are looking for partner companies and organisations interested in collaborating in the development of a joint community energy storage project. This Workshop will be the first stage in designing and scoping the project which it is intended will be deployed within a major area-based residential redevelopment scheme, offering a significant test bed demonstration opportunity. The Workshop will;
- Examine how the key barriers to the acceptance of community energy storage can be overcome in order to offer a secure, competitively priced, low carbon energy supply and services to local residents and businesses.
- Consider the development of new delivery and business models enabling the commercialisation and deployment of existing energy storage technologies at a community level.
- Provide details of the proposed regeneration test bed area.
- Offer an opportunity to tour a pilot scheme that has been established at the University’s Creative Energy Homes.
This event is specifically aimed at companies or organisations, which have relevant energy sector expertise and an active commercial interest in the development of community energy schemes. If you would like to know more or are interested in attending please contact Neil Horsley (email@example.com)
