NEWS: Osney Island Smart and Fair Neighbourhood Trial | LEO – Local Energy Oxford

LEO (Local Energy Oxfordshire) is one of the UK’s most ambitious, wide-ranging and innovative energy trials, seeking to accelerate the UK’s transition to a zero-carbon energy system.

A group of households and businesses on Osney Island have signed up with Project LEO to generate and store their own electricity. They will share data on how this reduces demand on the local distribution network. We will also work with residents to understand the impacts and opportunities for small dense urban environments to make the switch to electric vehicles (EVs).  Our local project is called Osney Supercharge.

We are also looking into ways to improve local renewable generation at Osney Lock Hydro (OLH) and the potential opportunities a local hydro scheme can have in providing flexibility services to the network.
