Afallen was part of a consortium demonstrating ways to revolutionise local markets, a concept that proposed bringing producers and energy users together and reducing bills for all
Afallen joined three other technical partners in responding to a brief for the Small Business Research Initiative. We were tasked with demonstrating how different technological solutions could work together to improve the uptake of renewable energy, and could make a contribution to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions for the local authority.
Afallen was a key team member, supporting economic modelling on the impact of a big increase in renewable energy generation, making profound links between technology and policy, and detailing the community engagement necessary for future deployments of energy demand reduction systems for industrial units.
