Electrical and communications connections
There are strong Government policy objectives pointing towards greater interoperability of energy smart appliances and connecting infrastructure. BEAMA is working to ensure that this will be consistent and appropriate and that it supports a strong and competitive market. We are also focused on how energy storage infrastructure works with other electrical and communications connections in the built environment, including smart metering and energy management. We are intent on ensuring that the electrification of heat and road transport is consistent with a safe, flexible, reliable, efficient and low-carbon energy system. The Energy Storage in Buildings Group supports other BEAMA groups in our engagement with the BEIS Energy Smart Appliance workstream and the development of PAS 1878 (smart architecture) and PAS 1879 (demand-side response).
