Keele University forges energy partnership with Siemens
Keele University has partnered up with Siemens to turn Keele’s campus into the largest single, integrated electricity, gas and heat Smart Energy Network Demonstrator (SEND).
This partnership will result in the digitalisation of 24 substations, the installation over 1,500 smart meters, 500 home controllers and a 5 MW renewable integration package - putting Keele University campus at the forefront of smart technology in Europe.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost of Keele University, Professor Mark Ormerod, explains, “The Smart Energy Network Demonstrator (SEND) is a fantastic example of innovation delivering really tangible results for Keele University, businesses and the wider UK economy, as well as major societal benefits. It puts Keele and our campus at the forefront of the new, more sustainable, energy landscape – the technology being deployed represents a revolution in smart energy technology for UK universities.”
Managing Director at Siemens Energy Management, Carl Ennis, explains, “It will be at the centre of a smart and flexible network of energy supply and storage – which will reduce emissions, improve security of supply to the campus and be open to further innovation from the academic community. We are seeing decentralised energy as a key trend in the UK and are delighted to work with an innovative partner such as Keele University to drive this intelligent energy technology forward.”
