Transforming Energy Demand through Digital Innovation
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM, 15 June 2018
TEDDINET , The Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London,SW1Y 5AG, United Kingdom
This event will bring together the TEDDINET community and anyone interested in digital technologies (smart meters, monitoring, automation and feedback) for enabling energy demand reduction and demand response. It is open to academics, industry, government and other professionals working in smart energy, smart buildings, smart citizens and related fields. It will celebrate the accomplishments of the TEDDINET projects and the learning that the network has facilitated as well as look forward to what the future holds, support the development of new connections and explore emerging opportunities.
TEDDINET is an EPSRC-funded network to support and promote the 28 TEDDI (Transforming Energy Demand through Digital Innovation) and BuildTEDDI (Transforming Energy Demand in Buildings through Digital Innovation) projects. This Research Councils UK programme of research has explored the opportunities afforded by ICT to improve energy demand reduction and energy management. This includes a focus not only on smart meters and smart grids, but also on smart citizens who are more aware of their energy use and are acting on that information to reduce energy bills and energy wastage in their daily lives without compromising their health or wellbeing. The (Build)TEDDI projects have supported multidisciplinary teams in the development of digital technology and the exploration of how digital technology is actually adopted by society to affect behaviour change with regards to energy use.
The day will focus on four questions:
1. How can digital technologies help us to understand the nature of energy demand in homes?
2. How will digital technologies impact on energy demand in non-domestic buildings over the coming decades?
3. How will digital technologies take us ‘beyond energy feedback’?
4. What do energy companies, SMEs and other market actors need from the research community to realise the benefits of digital innovation for consumers?
Places for this event are limited. Please register now to express your interest, and we will confirm your registration by 30 April 2018.
