Project LEO (Local Energy Oxfordshire) is helping Oxfordshire to accelerate towards net zero. Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) is proud to be the lead partner on LEO and to be supporting Oxfordshire, the first county to declare a climate emergency, to deliver its net zero ambitions. The project is trialling the matching of renewable generation and demand at a local level, with the trials based around three key themes; technology, local markets and community. The holistic nature of LEO means it will seek to facilitate challenges as broad as; the move away from domestic gas heating, the increase in electric vehicle (EV) uptake, the possibilities for battery storage at the grid edge, and the development of an ethical framework informed by the concepts of ‘Smart and Fair’ to secure SSEN’s commitment to leave no-one behind in the transition to net zero.
