Abstract Energy consultancy Baringa Partners were appointed to design and develop a software modelling tool to be used in the planning of cost-effective local energy systems. This software is called EnergyPath and will evolve to include a number of additional packages to inform planning, consumer insights and business metrics. Element Energy, Hitachi and University College London have worked with Baringa to develop the software with input from a range of local authorities, Western Power Distribution and Ramboll. EnergyPath will complement ETI’s national strategic energy system tool ESME which links heat, power, transport and the infrastructure that connects them. EnergyPath is a registered trade mark of the Energy Technologies Institute LLP.

This report sets out the potential role of local area energy planning as a valuable activity that can assist with meeting the ambitious decarbonisation and housing energy performance commitments of the Clean Growth Strategy informed by the pilot studies undertaken using EnergyPath Networks as part of the Smart Systems and Heat Phase 1 Programme. It is aimed at local authorities and other local stakeholders with an emphasis on local area energy planning which reflects local conditions, challenges and priorities to enable an appropriate transition to a low carbon energy system.
