BankEnergi3: End to end energy trading framework

The BankEnergi consortium have been awarded UK Research and Innovation grant funding by the government’s ‘’Prospering from the Energy Revolution’’ (PFER) fund to develop an end-to-end energy and flexibility trading specification. This will assist the transition to a low carbon economy by enabling smart local decentralised energy trading systems.

BankEnergi to work closely with GreenSCIES project

The BankEnergi concept can be applied wherever there are clusters of assets suitable for local energy trading.  As well as its base on London’s South Bank, it is working closely with a project based in Islington looking at smart heat networks, called GreenSCIES (Green Smart Community Integrated Energy System).

Simon Hughes supports BankEnergi ideals

At a workshop sharing progress on the BankEnergi project, speakers – including Simon Hughes, Chancellor of London South Bank University – outlined how local energy systems can improve air quality, lower bills for organisations in the area, and help foster community engagement.

BankEnergi has a vision that businesses and residents on the South Bank will be able to achieve bankable energy and carbon savings through a combination of demand management, energy storage, renewables and peer to peer trading. So where does Energy Storage fit in the merit order?
