The eagerly- awaited Cenex Low Carbon Vehicle Connected Automated Mobility show returns in 2023, and Advanced Infrastructure is thrilled to be bringing LAEP+ to the event, showcasing how the tool is being used by Local Authorities and EV solution providers to accelerate the roll out of EV charge points.
Advanced Infrastructure is pleased to announce that it has been validated as an Achilles network member as well as achieving the UVDB Silver Plus registration.
The Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology that produces impartial and balanced briefings to facilitate knowledge exchange between UK Parliament and research communities, has this month released the 'Local area energy planning: achieving net zero locally' research briefing. The focus of the briefing considers how effective the process of LAEP is in delivering the necessary energy system changes required at the local level using the early examples of ‘trail blazer’ local authorities that are adopting the process.
Energy data and software company Advanced Infrastructure has partnered with the global energy and emissions data management company, FlexiDAO, in a project that provides corporate energy buyers with more options for making impactful energy decisions.
The British Renewable Energy Awards (BREA’s) organised by the Association for Renewable Energy and Clean Technology was back for another year on the 23rd June 2023. Amongst the finalists attending the event, Advanced Infrastructure was announced the winner of the 'Accelerating to Net Zero Award' with National Grid ESO also being Highly Commended in the same category.
Project PRIDE (Planning Regional Infrastructure in a Digital Environment), which includes consortium partners Advanced Infrastructure and West Midlands Combined Authority, aims to improve decision-making on energy infrastructure by bringing together key stakeholders and relevant datasets in a virtual environment.
The International Geospatial Innovation Awards, which celebrates how geospatial innovation is shaping the world around us now and delivering sustainable development for the future has released a shortlist of the finalists for the 2023 awards.
Advanced Infrastructure has been shortlisted for a trio of awards for their LAEP+ (Local Area Energy Planner Plus) Platform in the categories of 'Accelerating Net Zero' and 'Low Carbon Transport'. In the Project category, Advanced Infrastructure's joint submission with Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks for Project RESOP has also been shortlisted for the 'Project' category award for 2023.
UK Power Networks has chosen Advanced Infrastructure for the development of a Digital Local Area Energy Planning Tool designed to support local authorities in the development of Local Area Energy Plans (LAEPs) as well as enabling UK Power Networks to better forecast and plan for network enhancements.
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.
Advanced Infrastructure has been shortlisted in the Ashden Awards for climate solutions in the category of Energy Innovation for its work in accelerating the UK's net zero journey through the geospatial planning tool “LAEP+" (Local Area Energy Planner Plus). Supporting local authorities, energy networks, and practitioners to identify and plan viable pathways to decarbonise local areas.
The highly anticipated 2023 event is set to be the best yet, featuring 120 global brands and cutting-edge start-ups showcasing the newest tech, tools and solutions for geospatial. Plus, a CPD accredited education programme with 200 sessions to choose from will allow visitors to get up to date with the latest developments.Amongst the lineup of speakers on the 17th May, Advanced Infrastructure's CEO Christopher Jackson will be taking to the stage to deliver the session "Geospatial tools for energy projects".
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.
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.
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.
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.
