Who are we

Advanced Infrastructure was formed around the shared frustration among the founders that decarbonisation shouldn’t be blocked by something as simple as data access and visibility.

What we do

Advanced Infrastructure is a data science and software company. We make it easier for private companies, local authorities, distribution network operators and consultants to plan local energy transitions and operate using low carbon power.

OUR PRODUCTS

We’re not consultants, instead we build the datasets and modelling
tools needed to inform net zero strategies.

LAEP+

LAEP+ is a net zero planning tool for local authorities and their delivery partners. Use it to create custom maps populated with hundreds of datasets and run browser-based analysis to identify and evidence the suitability of different sites for low carbon energy interventions.

As we electrify, more emissions than ever become associated with electricity consumption. Using powerful network models, our carbon data services tell you the exact carbon intensity (emission factor) of electricity at any location on the grid. Access via API or a managed data service to understand your carbon avoidance and impact with greenwash free granularity. Optimised for Scope 2 reporting, EV routing, operational asset management and CO2 avoidance.

Testimonials

"

LAEP+ has enabled us to collaborate with many local authorities within the regions SSEN serves, to share network data and information from multiple sources alongside modelling best practice to build a clear picture of optimal pathways to reach net zero.

Innovation Project Manager, Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks

"

The tool has been a strong asset to our EV team, allowing us to assess and shortlist potential charge point sites based on a number of factors including network capacity, availability of off-street parking and proximity to existing charge points. This is an invaluable step saving time and resources in the implementation process.

Project RESOP (Regional Energy System Optimisation and Planning )
Project RESOP (Regional Energy System Optimisation and Planning )

Project RESOP (Regional Energy System Optimisation Planning) aims to take a ‘whole system’ approach, by drawing together data from multiple sources into a single tool that can be used to plan retrofit and roll out of low carbon technologies (LCTs) like electric vehicle charge points.

Project LEO (Local Energy Oxfordshire)
Project LEO (Local Energy Oxfordshire)

In November 2021, following a public tender process, Advanced Infrastructure was appointed to provide an energy mapping tool for project LEO utilising Advanced Infrastructure’s LAEP+ software service. This provided an excellent opportunity to test and validate the value of geospatial solutions for local area energy planning.

Spatial analytics for EV charge point siting
Spatial analytics for EV charge point siting

In June 2021, Advanced Infrastructure and EB Charging were awarded funding from the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles to specify and build a cloud-based siting tool for EV charge points. The output was EV Site, an EV focussed instance of our planning tool LAEP+. Advanced Infrastructure’s Head of Product, Lily Cairns Haylor, discusses the challenges of siting EV charge points at scale and the ways digital approaches might accelerate the tricky process.

London’s Burning (fossil fuels)
London’s Burning (fossil fuels)

In collaboration with the Centre for Net Zero, Octopus Energy's not-for-profit spin out, we examined the impact of heat pump uptake between 2021 and 2031. For London Climate Action Week 2021 we visualised and compared a winter's peak in 2021, where Londoners are primarily kept warm by gas, to a winter's peak in 2031 where the rollout of 40,000 heat pumps shift heating demand from the gas network to the electricity network.
