Energy Systems Catapult (ESC) announced on Tuesday 21 March that it has been appointed by DESNZ to carry out an energy system digital spine feasibility study, in partnership with Arup and the University of Bath. The digital spine is a concept of technical processes and defined governance roles and responsibilities that will allow the exchange of energy system data in a secure and interoperable manner. The six-month feasibility study is a sub-programme of DESNZ’s Flexibility Innovation Programme and aims to establish the needs case for an energy system digital spine and its benefits, as well as the data infrastructure required to deliver it. Evidence from the study will be used to inform future policy, regulation, and innovation development.
