Bristol: a case study on the training and skills needed for a smart local energy ‘system of systems’

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

This report presents an analysis of the smart local energy (SLE) case study undertaken with the city of Bristol. It argues that the SLES must be viewed as a system of systems (SoS), as it is comprised of a set of loosely interconnected, independently evolved, managed and operated sub-systems. The sub-systems considered in this study are: transport and mobility, traditional energy supply, building and retrofit, local government, community energy, ICT for energy services, local communities, and citizens. All of these play a part in the journey of a particular locality to meet net zero ambitions. Here, the findings for the city of Bristol at this SoS level are summarised, while considering the challenges and skills needed to bring the local sub-systems together for a common goal of clean energy commitments and addressing the climate emergency.
