Local energy innovation for Liverpool
The Liverpool Energy Xchange is the missing piece of the energy jigsaw. Small-scale producers of cheap and green energy – like rooftop solar – have little incentive to produce more than they need because they get paid so little for it. This means more expensive energy must be bought in, and decarbonisation is slowed down. We are designing a market platform where businesses, universities, homes, landlords and institutions can trade energy with one another – at a price that makes it worthwhile – and offer valuable flexibility services to local and national grid operators.
