Now in its third year, the British Data awards are back for 2023. The awards celebrates the success of organisations and individuals from FTSE 100 heavyweights, public sector pioneers, technology unicorns, fast-growing scale-ups, essential Not-For-Profits, and everything in between.
A record 226 entries were received this year and Advanced Infrastructure we're thrilled to have been announced as a finalist in the shortlist for "Start-Up Of The Year "as well as "Data for Good Initiative Of The Year".
Advanced Infrastructure develops and provides spatial analytics and digital twins for the energy transition. The company helps local authorities, distribution network operators and consultants to plan the rollout of low carbon infrastructure.
The net-zero planning spatial analytics platform for Local Area Energy Plans puts hundreds of datasets and analysis tools in the hands of local authorities, energy network operators and stakeholders. This supports planners to identify the optimal locations of low-carbon technologies such as EV charge points and heat pumps as well as informing long-term energy strategies and plans.
LAEP+ uses digital twins to support decision making by local stakeholders and forecasts network capacity, building retrofits, heat networks, and EV rollouts all in one platform. Hundreds of API integrations ensure that all decisions are made on the latest, building stock, sociodemographic and energy network data.
Over the past three years, the company has built a client base of public and private sector organisations including Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks, Oxfordshire County Council and Dundee City Council through project LEO and RESOP as well as B2B and B2C organisations such as Zapmap and Cepro.
