carbonTRACK has announced that through its local arm carbonTRACK UK, it will leverage its global expertise to deliver a behind-the-meter solution with demand response and Virtual Power Plant (VPP) capabilities at London South Bank University.
The site will connect into the wider energy ecosystem through a “ground-breaking” open energy data integration layer linked into carbonTRACK’s VPP solution for interfaces with various route-to-market providers.
carbonTRACK Managing Director Spiros Livadaras said the consequent balancing of energy would set the standard to solve grid constraints caused by an ageing and under-capacity energy distribution infrastructure.
“It’s widely recognised that a flexible approach to managing the whole energy system is a key strategy to achieve the UK’s target of carbon-neutrality by 2050,” Livadaras said.
carbonTRACK provides an ‘always on’ smart gateway that allows business premises to remotely monitor and control electricity use, using smartphone-controlled facilities management tools to switch schedules, customise alerts, and says these tools will provide BankEnergi customers with a “high level of control, for energy trading and lowering costs, as well as enabling BankEnergi to provide a better service through Virtual Power Plant functionality”.
The BankEnergi III consortium consists of Consortio, 4D Energy Advisory, carbonTRACK UK, Fintricity Group, Beccs, London South Bank University, Tonik Energy, Wales & West Utilities and Power Transition.
