Innovate UK and French energy giant Engie have teamed up to launch a £4 million competition to help fund projects at the forefront of the energy transition.
Data must be more accessible and open, according to a report from the Energy Data Taskforce.
A project incorporating the development of a local, smart energy system for both businesses and consumers surrounding Ellesmere Port in Cheshire has received backing from Innovate UK.
The first vehicle-to-grid trial project from the £30 million government competition, thought to be “the largest, most diverse” project of its kind in the world, will be completed in May 2019 according to Innovate UK’s lead on the project.
The government has launched a £40 million funding competition to develop new technologies and business models that demonstrate innovative ways of charging electric vehicles (EVs) on street or by using wireless charging.
Almost £30 million has been awarded to over 20 vehicle to grid (V2G) projects, uniting vehicle manufacturers, aggregators, infrastructure operators, energy suppliers and academia across the UK in the first major investment in the technology from government.
