The Micro DE project was a scoping and feasibility study to identify opportunities for micro-generation storage and control technology development at an individual dwelling level in the UK. The study investigated the potential for reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions through Distributed Energy (DE) technologies. This was achieved through the development of a segmented model of the UK housing stock supplemented with detailed, real-time supply and demand energy-usage gathered from field trials of micro distributed generation and storage technology in conjunction with building control systems. The outputs of this project now feed into the Smart Systems and Heat programme.
This deliverable is number 6 of 7 in Work Package 3. The report provides a proposal for the design and execution of a large scale field trial of micro DE technologies based on learnings fromthe execution of the Micro DE Flexible Research Project.
It should be noted that field trial proposed at the start of the FRP has now been integrated into the ETI Smart Systems project and as such the plan proposed here is unlikely to be executed in its current guise.
