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.
Projects and schemes are now underway in Norfolk and Suffolk, facilitated by participation of the relevant councils and other lead stakeholders. A summary of Pixie Energy and it’s projects can be downloaded here.
These projects are considering 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 are being examined.
There is no limit on the number of pilots we are scoping, and is subject to availability of funding and appetite from project participants.
