New and emerging approaches to quantifying energy savings for retrofit
29/03/2023, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
In this webinar, Data Analyst James Fenna and Carbon Co-op Retrofit Lead, Jonathan Atkinson, set out new and emerging learning from Carbon Co-op’s Metered Energy Savings innovation project, OpenEnEffs.
The case for evaluation
If the UK is to increase private and public investment in energy efficiency, to support demand reduction for flexibility and to innovate new retrofit services, a trusted, robust and accurate approach to calculating energy savings – known as a Metered Energy Savings approach – is required rather than the modelling and guess work used at present.
The importance of a Metered Energy Savings approach was set out in this coalition report published by the Green Finance Institute.
Carbon Co-op has been working on a nine months project as part of the InnovateUK Open Digital Solutions to Net Zero innovation programme, using smart meter data and the open CalTRACK methodology as a way to quantify energy savings.
Find out about Carbon Co-op’s new PowerShaper Tracker tool developed within the project which could in future assist financial institutions and other stakeholders including DNOs, retrofit providers and Government programmes to invest in the decarbonisation of our housing stock.
We will also talk about the broader applications of the technology, other approaches and the challenges we face in rolling this kind of innovation out at scale.
This event is suitable for
- policy makers
- energy efficiency practitioners including community energy and one stop shops
- local authority officers
- housing provider staff
- software architects and;
- innovation practitioners.
