Energy SuperHub Oxford
This project is led by Pivot Power LLP with a consortium of Habitat Energy Limited, Kensa, Oxford City Council, RedT Energy and the University of Oxford. The project will involve the installation of the world’s first transmission-connected lithium ion and redox-flow hybrid battery. Other UK sites have already been identified as potential sites for replication. ESO will include a network of 320 ground source heat pumps, targeting social housing and operating with smart controls and community engagement. Cloud hosted and AI powered software will take an algorithmic approach to forecasting, energy demand/supply optimisation, and management of battery degradation.
The university project lead is Professor David Howey in the Energy Storage Systems, Dept of Engineering.
