Taking place at Housing 2023, the inaugural Unlock Net Zero Live Awards seek to recognise and champion progress on the journey to decarbonisation for the UK housing sector and the supply chain that supports it.
Amongst the finalists, Advanced Infrastructure has been shortlisted for the Technology Innovation of the year Award which recognises innovative technology from the last two years across the housing sector and its decarbonisation journey.
Advanced Infrastructure's Local Area Energy Planner plus tool (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.
This supports planners in Local Authorities and Housing Associations 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.
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 UK housing sector continues to build new low carbon homes whilst ensuring existing homes are retrofitted to reach the UK Government’s target of net zero emissions by 2050. These awards are an important opportunity to take a step back and review how far we’ve come, and share inspiration for where we go next in this transition.
There are 12 categories to recognise the achievements of the housing sector and its supply chain across both new build and retrofit projects. These awards could be entered by an individual, a team, a company or an organisation and, in some categories highlighting collaborative work done on a project-level.
Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony taking place on Tuesday 27th June, alongside Housing 2023.
