UK research shows how smart homes can boost demand response

New research undertaken by the UK’s Loughborough University in partnership with the Solar Trade Association and Advance Further Energy reveals significant positive impacts of smart energy technologies in the home. These impacts include carbon reductions, energy bill savings, and improved system resilience…

The evidence is here – deploying smart energy technologies across the country not only cuts carbon and helps households save on their energy bills, but can actively minimise spikes in electricity demand which place the grid under intense stress. It is not simply the homeowner who stands to benefit from solar and energy storage, but everyone.

The City of Sydney goes 100 per cent renewable

Commencing from July 1, Sydney will become a wholly renewable hub, with all operations powered by 100 per cent renewable energy. Originating from local sources, a power purchase agreement will see street lighting, buildings, sports facilities and even the Town Hall operate under this sustainable resource…

The process of buying energy from a generator when its output matches your demand is known as load matching. For example, if you use most of your electricity at night, like we do, you choose to buy more wind power than solar power. It’s not just a good idea financially — if every large energy buyer practiced load matching, our electricity grid would become much more stable and sustainable.
