A smart energy project on the Isles of Scilly will develop systems to balance the islands’ supply and demand for electricity, increase use of renewables and help towards energy independence. The European Regional Development Fund project will focus on housing stock by installing an internet of things (IoT) platform, which will use home batteries, electric vehicles and heating systems to manage supply and demand.

The project will lay foundations for the wider Smart Islands programme which aims to cut electricity bills by 40%, meet 40% of energy demand through renewables, and see 40% of vehicles being electric or low-carbon – by 2025.

Chris Wright, Chief Technology Officer at the home battery company Moixa said, “[Our systems] will be scalable and flexible so they can be replicated easily to allow communities all over the world to cut carbon and benefit from the smart power revolution.”
