The visit was the same day the government released the “Plan launched to bring smart energy technology into homes and businesses”. Charles Bradshaw-Smith spoke with Bloomberg about the government’s plan: “It’s going to allow households to aggregate via service companies, so individual households can start to act as a big block of energy storage”.

According to My Nottingham News, MP Claire Perry said: “Today, as part of our Industrial Strategy, the Government has launched an ambitious and far reaching plan to prepare our energy system in the future. I was fascinated by the ground breaking research being carried out by the University of Nottingham, which incorporates small energy systems in local housing projects. The plan we published today will help make it even easier for these new technologies to be rolled out across the country”.
