UK Power Networks is working with some of the top names in the world of sustainability and low-carbon solutions. The level of expertise for the project is exceptional; it could even be described as a “one-stop shop” for low-carbon know-how.
One of the largest UK home and business energy suppliers, EDF Energy is working with Low Carbon London to supply smart meters to homes across London. The company is also one of the aggregators in the demand response trial.
Another aggregator in the Demand Response trial, EnerNOC helps commercial, institutional and industrial organisations use energy more intelligently while paying less for it and generating cash flow that benefits the bottom line.
Committed to developing a smarter electricity network, Flexitricity created and now operates the largest and most advanced smart grid in the UK. The company is also an aggregator in the Demand Response trial.
The Mayor has a clear vision of London being recognised as a world leader in improving the environment locally and globally. This involves everyone working together and big, bold programmes such as RE:NEW, RE:CONNECT and the Green Enterprise District which are working in partnership with Low Carbon London.
The college, which has a world-class power systems simulation facility, is creating a Learning Laboratory for Low Carbon London, to capture information and learning from the project and share it with a wide group of stakeholders.These include DNOs (Distributed Network Operators), the rest of the energy industry, academic institutions, Londoners, local communities and cities across the world.
Formed as a charity in 2009, the Institute provides inroads for trialling smart grid technology, demand response mechanisms, smart meters and new commercial arrangements in areas within the Green Enterprise District of East London. It will also be working to attract additional funding to the programme.
The business and technology service company is driven by its commitment to living in a more sustainable society. Its role in Low Carbon London is to provide the smart meter head-end to capture all smart meter data, as well as an experienced project management resource.
One of the largest investor-owned energy companies in the world, National Grid is involved in the 'wind twinning' trial. The knowledge gathered in the Low Carbon London Learning Laboratory will allow National Grid to better understand the dynamics of incorporating demand response solutions which help it balance network generation and demand with increasing levels of intermittent renewable energy. This will also support London’s existing and planned low carbon strategies as well as accommodate the many different demands on the grid we will face in the future.
The global engineering and technology company is drawing from its experience in smart grids from other global projects to work on the project and is setting up an Operational Data Store (ODS) to capture all the information and data from the trials. Siemens also plans to create 'The Crystal', an iconic building to be to showcase sustainable technologies. The building will be open to the public and will explore the innovation required to achieve a low carbon society.
The innovative technology company provides smart grid products and services to the power industry. It is supplying active network management tools for the decentralised energy trial.
Transport for London which leads a private and public partnership consortium to deliver London’s largest city wide electric vehicle charging network Source London is assisting with the electric vehicle trials.
