Some of the big questions on our mind

What if we could engage with the energy system like a computer game, exploring different actions, learning quickly and safely and applying what we learn in the real-world?
How do we base decisions on the very best data available - incorporating fast real world feedback loops and proprietary insight from industry?
How can we fundamentally reshape our markets to support a faster, fairer and more affordable energy transition?
How do we consider people’s behaviour within energy models that have been traditionally techno-economic?
How can open research unlock deeper collaboration across the increasing number of people focused on Net Zero?
Where are the biggest sensitivities in our plans, where more focus could yield a 10x payback?
What actions should society be taking now, no matter how things play out?
How do we make the greenest energy also the most affordable?

Our door is open

We work hand in hand with governments, regulators, city and business leaders, investors, innovators and researchers
