Non-Domestic Smart Energy Management Innovation Competition
This competition focuses on energy management products and services for smaller non-domestic sites based on data analytics using smart meter data. Its aim is to develop the market for, and maximise the overall uptake and impact of, such products and services, in order to help secure energy demand reduction within target segments of the non-domestic sector, which are:
The total potential value of the competition is up to £8.8m (up to £7.3m for the competition and up to £1.5m for a research and evaluation contractor), although BEIS may allocate less than this depending on the quality of the applications.
The competition will be delivered in three main phases:
Phase 1 – Feasibility studies and developing smart meter software/data tools.
Phase 2 – Initial testing with customer organisations and development/testing of supporting energy advice.
Phase 3 – Roll out/further testing of the tools, with supporting energy management advice and engagement approaches.
Up to 9 projects, distributed across these 3 sectors, will be selected to receive initial funding in Phase 1, which is scheduled for Spring / Summer 2018.
This competition is being promoted via the Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI), which offers applicants the chance to tender for a contract of service.
