Examples of solutions we would be interested in are electric heating (including heat pumps, infrared panels, building integrated solutions), domestic HVAC (Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning), MVHR (Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery), solar thermal, hybrid systems, hydrogen boilers, smart software solutions involving AI or machine learning that would help save energy, cutting edge insulation solutions, connected maintenance schemes and innovative ways to engage with customers.
We’re looking for solutions that would benefit residential consumers, as opposed to business customers. These could be applied to new build, housing association, rental as well as privately owned homes.
Your solution should be at least a minimum viable product, but something that is new and innovative that pushes the boundaries – not something that is already readily available in the market (i.e. we looking for solutions with less than 1,000 product sales in the UK).
In this challenge, we’re not looking for combined heat and power/district heating, insurance products and pure fossil fuel solutions such as oil or gas.
