||This project studied how value can be delivered across a smart energy value chain - in the context of the UK. It built a clear understanding of how smart energy systems can deliver combined consumer value alongside commercial value for market participants - producers, suppliers, distributors. The analysis will help to make the commercial deployment of smart energy systems more likely. This £600,000 project was delivered by Frontier Economics, a leading economic consultancy.
This call for proposals is for Work Area 4 of the Smart Systems and Heat Programme, which covers Value Management and Delivery. It will address the key issue of how value can be delivered across the entire smart systems value chain (in the context of energy systems for domestic and small commercial consumers in the UK). The objective is to establish how smart systems might be configured and operatedto deliver sufficient value to all likely market participants, thereby making commercial deployment more likely.
