Could onshore wind help to address fuel poverty?

UK fuel poverty is forecast to rise in 2023, forcing poorer households to ration heating fuel and to suffer the consequent impacts upon their health and wellbeing. Regen, Possible and Community Energy England are working together to explore the viability of combining community wind schemes with electrified heating technology to improve the affordability of energy bills, creating a replicable pathway to end reliance on gas.

Project duration: July 2023 – January 2024

Project manager: Jack Adkins

Regen Possible Cee Horiz

As of mid-2023, the Government is forecasting a further rise in fuel poverty to 3.53 million (1 in 7) households and a further widening of the fuel poverty gap to an average of £443 per household, an increase of 31%. One of the main recommendations from the Committee on Fuel Poverty’s (CFP) Annual Report 2023 was to deliver ‘a fair transition to net zero that does not increase fuel poverty’, by seeking to ‘deploy low carbon technologies at least cost, best payback’ as part of an Energy Affordability Strategy. In this context, onshore wind emerges as a pivotal player, offering a sustainable and cost-effective solution in achieving the CFP’s recommendation whilst working towards a decarbonised future.

Regen are working with Community Energy England in supporting UK climate charity Possible to explore how low carbon electric heat technology, such as heat pumps installed in the community or heat networks, powered by locally owned wind could provide affordable, secure energy and a replicable pathway to end reliance on gas while cutting costs and supporting communities.

As part of the Wind+Heat project, Regen will:

  • Analyse the high-level costs, savings and payback period of different model wind+heat schemes
  • Highlight areas where energy poverty could be tackled by a community wind+heat scheme, including off-gas grid communities
  • Explore the benefits and challenges for communities looking to develop a community wind scheme
  • Identify potential partners for a wind+heat innovation trial
  • Assess the barriers and produce policy recommendations to enable future wind+heat schemes

Leveraging community and local energy for a just transition: a review of current and future opportunities for Scotland


Context – a just transition for Scotland: 

As Scotland embarks on a just transition to net zero in a time of multiple overlapping crises, community and local energy could have a significant role to play. Community and local energy approaches can bring significant benefits into towns, cities and regions. Community-owned generation assets such as wind and solar PV can create new revenue streams for local areas, while local energy systems and services led by local authorities and wider local stakeholder partnerships can help to:


The project:

Innovations in technology, financial models, policy, participation and ownership in the local and community energy spaces offer new opportunities for a just transition.

This project will thus explore the current and future opportunities for community and local energy to directly support Scotland’s National Just Transition Outcomes and a just energy transition more broadly.

Using a mixed methods approach including systematic literature review, interviews, distributional analysis and a small-scale citizens’ jury, we will:

  1. Analyse the current state of community and local energy in Scotland and beyond, to understand new models, innovations and opportunities
  2. Develop a set of up-to-date community and local energy models and approaches
  3. Outline the barriers and opportunities of these community and local energy models and approaches for low-income, marginalised and typically excluded groups and places
  4. Evaluate how these models can support Scotland’s eight National Just Transition Outcomes
  5. Co-design a set of high-level principles with citizens for making community and local energy work for a just transition more broadly

Project outputs:

The key output of this project is to develop a set of tangible proposals for supporting community and local energy in Scotland as part of the Energy Strategy and Just Transition Plan, due to be updated in summer 2023. This will be also published in a final report.

In partnership with Innovate UK, Regen is leading on the development of a Playbook for Network Innovation to support projects throughout their journey and provide recommendations to shape the UK energy innovation landscape.

Project manager: Grace Millman

Project duration: July 2023 – January 2024

The context: Energy network innovation

Network innovation funding has enabled improvements in efficiency, safety, customer service and resilience. We have seen some big steps forward, such as the testing and roll-out of active network management and flexibility markets. However, a more radical step change is required if we are to meet the net zero challenge.

The innovation landscape has also undergone a significant transformation in the last few years, with new price control periods and changing innovation funding.


The Strategic Innovation Fund

Ofgem and Innovate UK are collaborating on the new Strategic Innovation Fund (SIF), which replaces the Network Innovation Competition (NIC) in the second RIIO price control period. With £450 million available over the next five years, the vision for the SIF is to enable a ‘giant leap together’ in network innovation, helping to deliver net zero at the lowest cost to consumers by enabling strategic change. Working with other public funders of innovation, the SIF aims to deliver real net benefits to network companies, energy users and consumers, and help the UK become a global hub of energy innovation; a ‘Silicon Valley’ of energy.


The project

Regen’s experience of working with the energy networks and innovators is that they face a number of challenges. This project has conducted a deep dive into previous projects to look for trends related to success and failure. This included looking at when useful learning was generated from the project, whether the innovation was rolled out into business-as-usual and whether a product or service was successfully commercialised.

This has been combined with existing academic research on innovation diffusion to identify targeted recommendations to the innovation community to increase the chances of successful deployment of future innovation projects. By harnessing these invaluable insights, we want to create a powerful resource that will guide innovators, energy networks and their partners as they develop and refine their ideas, craft project applications and embark on their journey of network innovation and successful deployment.

The Playbook for Network Innovation will be published soon.

Commissioned by Innovate UK, Regen have been leading work developing insights and impacts from the Prospering from the Energy Revolution programme, to help share learnings around the opportunities and potential of smart local energy systems in the UK.

Project manager: Fraser Stewart; Project director: Merlin Hyman

What are smart local energy systems?

Screenshot 2023 01 09 121017

A smart local energy system brings together energy generation, storage, heat, transport, and buildings in a local area and connects them in a smart way using data and digital technologies. Such systems can help local areas to meet their net zero energy ambitions in a holistic way that reflects the needs of local citizens, communities, and businesses. They also have the potential to deliver much wider social and economic benefits, including regional economic growth, improved health and fuel poverty outcomes, better connected places, and new opportunities for jobs and business models.


The ‘Prospering from the Energy Revolution’ programme

Funded by UK Research and Innovation and delivered by Innovate UK, the Prospering from the Energy Revolution programme set out to demonstrate the viability, impact, and future prospects of these smart local energy systems. Over £104m has been awarded to the programme, with match-funding taking this up to over £170m in total.

This funding supported three live demonstrator projects, 10 detailed design projects and a host of other initiatives, to explore the feasibility of smart local energy systems, understand the opportunities they present, and demonstrate the value they can offer in practice to the UK’s energy transition.


The project

To help understand key learnings and opportunities from this diverse portfolio of projects, Regen conducted extensive research and stakeholder engagement around three key themes: Finance and Investment, Policy and Regulation, and Skills and Capabilities.

This work was then turned into a series of short, sharp, “insight briefs” which spotlight high-level findings and provide tangible recommendations to enable the value on offer from these systems going forward.

The final project report pulls together findings from three insight papers along with findings on citizens and communities and data and digitalisation, to give a comprehensive overview of what smart local energy systems are, the value they offer, how they are developed, how they impact different stakeholders and communities, and how to ultimately enable them as part of a cleaner, smarter energy system.

Innovation is central to the ability of the networks to rise to the challenge of net zero. Regen supported Energy Networks Association in developing a strategy to ensure network innovation projects have clear goals and deliver benefits to consumers by tackling the key issues facing our energy system.

Project duration: November 2021 to March 2022

ENA Offical Logo (High Res)

Regen was commissioned by ENA to revise and refresh the strategy to ensure that network innovation continues to be coordinated, focused on the key priorities for the energy system and delivers benefits to energy consumers.

The innovation landscape has evolved since the network innovation strategies were last published in 2020 and so have the priorities and views of energy network stakeholders. With the input and feedback of a diverse group of stakeholders, we’ve ensured that the underlying principles, themes and focus areas that guide network innovation continue to tackle our biggest challenges for 2022 and beyond. Stakeholder feedback has shaped every section of this strategy and we thank all those who were involved throughout.

The aim of the strategy is to enable stakeholders to understand the key priorities for network innovation and how to get involved. You’ll find this information, and lots more, in the strategy and you can also explore these concepts by navigating the interactive infographics below.

  • The first infographic gives you an overview of the network innovation themes and principles. When you click on a segment, a pop-up will appear summarising key information. You can also explore the innovation focus areas defined in the strategy and relevant network project case studies.

  • The second infographic is a high-level guide that maps out the key stages involved in delivering an innovation project from an initial idea to successful implementation and benefits realisation. By clicking on each step of the process, a pop-up will appear highlighting where this strategy can help and signposting to further information and relevant links.

Stakeholder engagement:

The development of the 2022 Energy Networks Innovation Strategy was underpinned by an extensive stakeholder engagement process, and we thank everyone who gave their time and thoughts to help shape the future of network innovation.

We first invited stakeholder views with the launch of an online consultation and associated webinar where we asked for feedback on the proposed updates to the principles and themes governing network innovation for 2022. We heard from 138 of you and at least 80% of you agreed with our proposed revisions to each of the innovation themes. The online consultation summary report can be read here.

View the slides from the webinar here. The recording from the webinar can be watched below.

We then ran two workshops in early 2022, attended by 199 stakeholders, to explore in detail the key focus areas sitting underneath the themes. These focus areas are intended to help innovators better understand how they can collaborate on network innovation projects by clearly laying out the priorities within each theme. The workshop summary report can be read here.

Within the strategy, we’ve included a high-level guide which maps out the key stages involved in delivering an innovation project from start to finish. We hope this will help the innovation community better understand how to collaborate with the networks to solve some of the biggest challenges faced by the industry.



Summit Email Header
