Centrica’s local energy market (LEM) trial has been beefed up with the addition of a new wind turbine and battery storage.
Centrica and sonnen have created the UK’s most advanced virtual power plant (VPP) according to the pair, following the installation of 100 domestic batteries.
Centrica is lauding a ‘world first’ as its Local Energy Market (LEM) enables National Grid ESO and Western Power Distribution (WPD) to simultaneously procure flexibility from the same platform.
A local energy market (LEM) in Brixton is to provide UK Power Networks (UKPN) with flexibility services through residential solar and storage.
Developers of local energy markets (LEMs) should take steps to future proof them in light of regulatory changes, the Energy Systems Catapult (ESC) said.
Centrica's Local Energy Market has been building momentum since its announcement over two years ago. Now, the technology is in and 160 homes and businesses across Cornwall are gearing up to prove that flexibility is the key to a decentralised, decarbonised energy system. It's a project that spans some of the industry's newest ideas and bits of kit and £19 million of funding, and now its ready to show what it can do.
Centrica has completed the installations of 100 domestic batteries in Cornwall as part of its Local Energy Market (LEM) trial.
Installations of solar and battery units are underway in Cornwall as part of a local energy project setting out to prove that distributed energy resources can power homes and businesses in the region via a smart digital aggregation platform.
