Oxfordshire County Council has won a national award for its role in a project that could revolutionise the way energy is produced and used in the UK.
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.
This year’s National Sustainability Awards which recognises the pioneers of sustainability is back once again. 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'
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.
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).
