Ground-breaking community microgrids

The award-winning Owen Square community microgrid in Bristol is being developed by CEPRO and its partners to be the UK’s most complete demonstration of the coming Energy Transition from fossil fuels to renewables. The project deployed solar panels and a hybrid air/ground Energy Centre with seasonal storage and is developing a local energy supply offer to 350 homes on the local substation.

Maximise local use of solar

The Skyprospector trial is a UK government funded study in Bristol to quantify the savings from “microgeneration aware” energy efficiency measures. Skyprospector analyses high-resolution data from electricity, gas and temperature monitors providing tailored retrofit advice in solar homes
