SEND is Europe’s largest testbed for the research and development (R&D) of renewable and smart energy technologies. Keele University, in partnership with Siemens, has created a centrally controlled, self-healing energy micro-grid across the campus. Integrating electricity, gas and heat, this smart energy network has helped Keele reduce carbon emissions by 4,000 tonnes and save £2 million in energy costs per annum. The project involved the digitalisation of 24 substations, the installation of over 1,500 smart meters, 500 home controllers and a 5 MW renewable integration package.
