Achieving net zero through a decarbonised system
Through our range of innovative CaRe solutions, our mission is to deliver the future of smart energy, working closely with both the private and public sectors to decarbonise the UK economy. Our strategic investment in established and emerging CaRe asset classes also helps to carve out new market segments with tremendous growth potential.
Building on the smart energy infrastructure that we establish through our meter and data assets nationwide, during 2021 we launched our first battery storage and renewable energy solutions that will support a more flexible and affordable system.
We are scaling up our engineering and delivery capabilities to support both the Domestic and Destination electric vehicle (EV) charge point marketplaces, whilst using our cloud-based platforms to monitor charging assets and collect payments for their usage.
Heat, buildings and hydrogen
We are developing our behind-the-meter technology solutions to meet the challenge of decarbonising heat, whilst also gearing up to support the transition to low-carbon hydrogen through our decades of experience in gas infrastructure.
Industrial energy efficiency
Energy efficiency continues to be a vital cog in the net-zero dynamic. As an expert adviser and strategic partner, we help our industrial customers manage their building portfolios over the long term with an approach to energy efficiency which is data-rich.
