Emergent Energy has been awarded an Energy Regulation Sandbox by Ofgem for its smart local energy system solution. It is the first Sandbox derogation to be part of the Balancing and Settlement Code, giving Emergent unique permission to trial a new energy process on a microgrid network that allows households to switch energy supplier. Going forwards, this will be essential to ensure microgrids can operate fairly and cost effectively the company said. The award will allow Emergent to trial its switching concept while scaling up its current offer for housing companies, where it has delivered nine smart local systems to date.
