FLEX LONDON

We're building a community to accelerate flexible low-carbon energy, so it’s available when you need it, saving you money and reducing the city’s carbon emissions. 

We are working with energy users and innovators; to support commercialisation of this new flexible energy resource. and are looking for more.

The programme identifies organisations that have the potential to use, generate and store energy at various times of the day or year, and match them with innovators that can help manage this. 

This will help London accommodate more renewable energy generation and manage additional demand on the grid which is being created by electric vehicles and the electrification of heat.

Supported by the Mayor of London, FlexLondon is part of his £34m Energy for Londoners programme which aims to make London’s homes warm, healthy and affordable, its workplaces more energy efficient, and to supply the capital with more local clean energy.



URBAN TRANSITIONS

Energy Unlocked are working with Overseas Development Institute and Stockholm Environment Institute to develop the energy workstream of the Coalition for Urban Transitions. The programme explores the role of city governments vis a vis national governments in an increasingly decentralised energy transition. More information coming soon.


EXERGY

Exergy is a project founded by LO3 Energy to bring blockchain’s decentralized digital ledger technology to create a permissioning and data sharing platform that supports the acceleration of localized marketplaces for transacting energy across existing grid infrastructure. Energy Unlocked were part of the founding team in 2017 and continue to closely advise the project. Get in touch if you’re interested in energy data governance.


EUROPE & ENERGY INNOVATION

A series of engagements to encourage cross-border European collaboration supported by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office Science and Innovation Network, starting at the 2018 Clean Energy Ministerial in Malmo, Sweden, where Energy Unlocked hosted a workshop to identify a 2-year innovator agenda. Key themes emerging were the need for more granular spatial and temporal data for innovators to encourage demand-side flexibility and data governance. Follow on engagements at European Utility Week in 2018 and the local energy-focused ‘Flex-ergy’ workshop in Copenhagen continues to bring project developers, innovators, network operators and governments together. Get in touch to join the network.


Energy Unlocked’s first initiative spanned the globe and found 100 companies capable of doubling energy productivity with their solutions, 10 business model types were categorised and results were shared to policy makers and industry, with help from our partners from the Alliance to Save Energy and The Climate Group, with major events at the International Energy Agency and COP22 in Marrakech. See all the information about the programme, platform and results.
