Technology: Solar, Storage and Energy Management
Project Type: Local Energy System
As part of the CARES Local Energy Challenge Fund, Blackwood won funding to explore the feasibility of a local energy system at their care home properties. Scene were brought into the project in Autumn 2015 and helped Blackwood to assess the options and design local energy systems at two properties.
The systems are based on solar PV generation, combined with battery storage, electric vehicles and a pioneering energy management system.The project is seeking further funding from the Local Energy Challenge Fund programme at present, and could act as a low carbon energy and transport demonstrator for the care home sector.
