Building on our work with Blueprint on Trent Basin, we were one of eight partners in this multi-disciplinary, collaborative project funded by InnovateUK.

Project SCENe (Sustainable Community Energy Networks) looked to accelerate the adoption of Community Energy Systems, using the Trent Basin site as a new housing development test bed to bring together technical knowledge, implementation and installation of renewable heat and electricity technologies as well as energy storage at this community-level scale. It also aimed to bring together all the companies involved in the energy supply chain with the potential buyers of up to 120 homes on site. As masterplanners of Trent Basin, we advised on the integration of the proposed technologies into the urban fabric.

The other project partners were: A.T. Kearney (project lead), Siemens, Blueprint, University of Nottingham, Stickyworld, Smartklub, Solar Ready and Loughborough University
