GMCA Energy Innovation & Challenge Group

Members from the Aberla Group’s internal Research and Innovation team have been attending the Greater Manchester Combined Authority Energy Innovation Challenge Group, a bi-monthly workshop helping to promote innovative practises and define regional energy policy into a 5-year implementation plan.

The workshop comprises five task groups; Heat Pump Accelerator Programme, Commercial Renewable Generation, GM Energy Innovation Network, and Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Strategy. Despite the variety of these task groups, the essential focus remained the same; to drive efficiency, increase renewable penetration and aid the authority in meeting their environmental targets.

Taking part in a task group focusing on increasing the commercial solar PV generating capacity of the Greater Manchester Area, focusing on creating a framework for installations across a number of building profiles. The challenge to overcome pertained to the variation of building and roof types, particularly focusingon decreasing the number of failed installations due to differences between consultant understanding and installation practise.

As a result of the workshop, a number of key task and finish groups were progressed, including the development of a commercial PV framework, to which Aberla will input minimum data requirements for installers costing, and the creation of a heat pump bid, seeking to deliver a pilot project of 100 heat pump installations across Greater Manchester.
