PassivSystems to install energy management systems on Isles of Scilly

Energy services company PassivSystems is planning to install cloud-based energy management systems and renewable technologies in homes and businesses on the Isles of Scilly, UK.

Energy services company PassivSystems is planning to install cloud-based energy management systems and renewable technologies in homes and businesses on the Isles of Scilly, UK.

The technologies will forecast energy demand and help control energy heating, storage, and generation. It is expected that the energy models will deliver necessary flexibility for a low-carbon energy system, as well as support a rapid global transition from a high-carbon to a low-carbon economy.

PassivSystems' chief executive officer (CEO) Colin Calder said: “Our scalable cloud-based energy management platform will be integrated with a range of domestic and commercial renewable technologies, allowing islanders to reduce their reliance on imported fossil fuels, increase energy independence and lower their carbon footprint.

"Our scalable cloud-based energy management platform will be integrated with a range of domestic and commercial renewable technologies."

“Our energy management systems will be installed in homes across the Isles of Scilly. Ten of these will be smart homes, piloting technologies from PassivSystems and Moixa Technology, including batteries and air source heat pumps.”

The firm further intends to supply home energy management systems for domestic buildings, enabling them to be integrated into an Internet of Things (IoT) platform and build monitoring systems for commercial properties.

The move is a part of the Hitachi Europe-led project Smart Energy Islands (SEI), which aims to minimise the island’s dependence on fossil fuels, enhance the use of renewable technologies, and increase the number of low-carbon vehicles on the island.
