The Smart Energy Network Demonstrator (SEND) together with the Centre of Excellence in Energy Security and Renewables (CEESR) at Keele University will promote the production of energy derived from renewable sources and support research, innovation and the commercialisation of low carbon and smart energy technologies by the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) areas’ energy sector.


The Keele University Smart Energy Network Demonstrator (SEND) will provide a real community based demonstrator for Central and Local Government, the research community, the energy industry and business and local communities of how a smart, flexible network of energy supply, storage and monitoring can improve energy security, reduce energy costs and reduce carbon emissions within a mixed environment and community.

It will be a phased delivery utilising the benefits of the Demonstrator to inform each phase of the installation to maximise benefit of future users, with anticipated completion by 2020/21.
