This year’s National Sustainability Awards which recognises the pioneers of sustainability took place on the 5th October at The Waldorf Hilton, London.
Now celebrating its 2nd year, the National Sustainability Awards look for the best in every category, from finance to renewables, from insulation to water conservation, all are important to ensure that future generations will be able to live in a cleaner, greener world.
Amongst the winners at the event including ITV, OVO, and Octopus Energy, Advanced Infrastructure was thrilled to have been crowned the winner of the 'Use of Data and Analytics Award' for its LAEP+ (Local Area Energy Planner Plus) Platform.
Although the awards are a celebration, they also serve to show how our society can, with good leadership, be lead through the post-pandemic recovery into a new and more sustainable path. The issues have not stood still, and neither have the solutions, but it is important that these ideas are seen and adopted.
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 UK Power Networks, Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks, Oxfordshire County Council and Dundee City Council as well as B2B and B2C organisations such as Zapmap and Cepro.
