Edinburgh-based energy tech firm Flexitricity is taking part in a project recently announced by UK energy ministry Claire Perry. Called the Smart Hub local energy scheme demonstrator, the project will take place in West Sussex and will help local communities tap into cheaper and greener power. It also aims to integrate energy management across council housing, transport infrastructure and private residential and commercial properties using a hybrid hydrogen and electric filling station, among other innovative technologies.
Neil O’Loughlin, project leader at Flexitricity, said: “We are very excited to be working on this exciting project which will bring further momentum to the energy revolution.
“Flexible energy will be an essential element of the UK’s energy mix when carbon generation falls off the grid by the mid-2020s. There is a huge opportunity for local community generation projects to create sustainable revenue streams and take advantage of the National Grid’s need for flexible power.”
Other firms that are chosen for the project are Connected Energy, Honda Motor Europe, ITM Power, Passiv-Systems, Moixa Technology, Switch2 Energy and West Sussex County Council.
