The Case Study Development project was commissioned by the ETI in Nov 2015 as part of Work Package 3 (WP3) of the Smart Systems and Heat Phase 1 programme. The project was intended to develop Market, Business and ICT Integrated Solutions through system architectures to provide evidence and guidance for business strategy and policy to enable the UK low carbon heat transition. This was achieved through understanding the inter-relationships between market frameworks, business process, asset management and ICT solutions. Primary focus was on the implementation at the local level, but in the context of a national energy system transition.
This report describes the specific considerations and approaches taken for developing ICT slices (bounded areas of functionality that can be specified, designed and implemented in manageable stages) through the architecture. This report is basedon the exemplar Energy System Architecture is as described in the “Energy Systems Architecture Methodology: Enabling Multi-Vector Market Design,” paper.
