– EnergyPath software to be tested in real life conditions in Newcastle, Manchester and Bridgend
– ETI working in partnership with local authorities to create location specific smart energy systems to meet their requirements

The Energy Technologies Institute is to work with three local authorities to test its innovative EnergyPath software

EnergyPath has been developed to help with the planning of cost-effective local energy systems for the UK and it will play a key role in the ETI’s Smart Systems and Heat (SSH) programme, which aims to create future-proof and economic local heating solutions for the UK.

During 2015 the ETI will work with Newcastle City Council, Bridgend County Borough Council and the Greater Manchester Combined Authority to develop the software further and test its output when operating across different locations.

The three locations provide a good representation of different parts of the UK. Feedback from the testing with the three authorities will identify areas of improvement ahead of the software being widely accessible from early 2016.
