Do you have a great idea to shift energy demand?
The Dynamic Demand Challenge Prize is seeking innovations that utilise data to significantly improve the ability of households or small businesses to demonstrate measurable reduction in carbon emissions by shifting energy demand to off peak times or towards excess renewable generation.
Nesta is supporting its Dynamic Demand Challenge (first reported here in July https://6-heads.com/2013/07/02/a-2nd-challenge-and-an-invitation-can-you-beat-the-peak/) with a webinar this Wednesday at 11.30.
Log on to the webinar to find out more about the £50,000 Dynamic Demand Challenge Prize and gain an insight into the type of innovations that are being developed around demand side response (DSR).

This is a unique opportunity to understand the context for the Dynamic Demand Challenge, hear from the partner organisations involved in this exciting project and gain an insight into the type of innovations that are being developed around demand side response.
A final award of £50,000 will be made to the entry that demonstrates the most significant impact (measured by NPL’s Centre for Carbon Measurement) within the challenge time frame.
The expected outcomes of the Challenge are:
- Demonstrable shift in peak usage to off peak times
- Measureable reduction in CO2 emissions
- Responsiveness to dynamics of supply of renewable energy
Chairing this webinar will be Helen Goulden – Executive Director of Nesta’s, Innovation Lab.
Other speakers involved in the webinar discussion include:
- Tom Burke, Founding Director of E3G, Environmental Policy advisor and visiting lecturer Imperial College (Keynote)
- Jane Burston, Director, NPL’s Centre for Carbon Measurement (Lead partner – scientific verification)
- Dr Franka Birke, Climate KIC (European Partner)
- Neil Rowley, Procurement Manager, National Grid (sponsor)
