Full scale multi vector energy system demonstrators enable validation of research


Through its consortium, CESI utilises many large-scale multi-vector energy demonstrators. Through these facilities, we can test, optimise and validate the CESI research. Demonstrators help researchers and industry investigate the energy system in real-world conditions. This work reduces costs to the whole energy system. Tackling the technical and operational challenges confirms the value proposition of the integrated system approach.

CESI's Demonstrators cover a wide range of energy systems:-

  • Rural farm energy networks
  • Urban energy systems
  • Local energy networks
  • Integrated gas, electricity and transport networks
  • Domestic Hybrid heating systems 
  • Heat Networks
  • Commerical Buildings
