Community Energy through Project SCENe – from research to reality
From Debs Storey
Find out how Project SCENe (Sustainable Community Energy Networks) looks to accelerate the adoption of community energy systems, a different way of generating and supplying heat and electricity to homes and commercial buildings. Locally produced energy is used locally, stored locally or exported to the grid resulting in reduced costs and more efficient use of distributed renewables to reduce the overall carbon emissions from the energy systems.
Dr Lucelia Rodrigues, Prof Mark Gillott and colleagues, explain how the University of Nottingham has come together with several partners to put SCENe’s research in to practise at the Trent Basin housing development in Nottingham.
