Grace Martin, Head of Marketing, Advanced Infrastructure

Launched in 1990, The Business Weekly Awards celebrates the success of organisations and individuals from Cambridge’s game-changing science & technology sector. Amongst the number of record entries for the 2023 Awards, Advanced Infrastructure we're thrilled to have been crowned the winner of the 2023 Sustainability Champion Award.

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.

Founded in 2020, Advanced Infrastructure has developed an innovative net zero Local Area Energy Planning Tool (LAEP+).

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.

The winners of the 2023 awards were announced on the 14th of September at the Cambridge based ceremony with Nobel Prize winning scientist Sir Greg Winter as guest speaker.
