Pixie Energy’s focus initially was on the Local Supply Communities Project (2015-2017), which started with work on how to structure local tariffs and the relative costs compared with national supplier offerings.
It has been refined through work supporting local stakeholders, including producers and consumers, on understanding access options and valuation optimisation.
The East Anglian Energy Market Innovation Project is now building on knowledge and relationships by scoping and establishing innovation projects with local partners to yield “learning by doing”, smarter, low-carbon solutions.
These will be in the forms of development case studies or possible pilot schemes in each of the Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire regions – facilitated by participation of the relevant councils and other lead stakeholders.
These case studies will consider possible groupings of low-carbon assets (including community schemes) and smarter consumption techniques (including EV charging points). In each case the interaction with network usage, constraints and investment will be examined.
There will be no limit on the number of pilots we will scope, subject to availability of funding and appetite from project participants.
