Domestic energy accounts for more than 25% of UK energy consumption and is becoming increasingly technologically complex. To respond to this the Salford Energy House, a whole house built in a lab under user-controlled conditions, has expanded its work from energy efficiency into energy systems where these technologies are linked and tested. In addition, the ‘Smart Meters>Smart Homes’ Lab looks at how smart meters technology can support an increasingly complex energy system. The Salford Energy House team have worked with more than 500 companies and have attracted commercial income and grants of more than £5m since they were established in 2010. (16)
