Opportunities to take part in our trials and sign up to the LEO newsletter to stay up to date with project news.

Thank you for your interest in the Local Energy Oxfordshire (LEO) project.

We’ll post any opportunities to get involved with the project on this page so keep checking back.

Take part in flexibility market trials

Starting in October 2021 we are working with partner project TRANSITION to run Flexibility Market Trials and are looking for people in Oxfordshire to get involved. As well as providing an opportunity to be part of a cutting-edge project shaping the future of the electricity network and enabling the journey to net-zero, you could also access payments of up to £500/MWh for flexible electricity by taking part. We are looking for anyone who:

  • Owns or manages an electricity generation asset or storage (such as batteries) located in Oxfordshire; or who
  • Owns or manages a business in the county that could take part in ‘demand response’, altering your electricity consumption away from times of peak demand on the network.

The trials will help us to design the flexibility markets of the future which will free up space on the network for Low Carbon Technologies and enable Distributed System Operations.

Deddington & Duns Tew Smart and Fair Neighbourhood heat pump trial

We’re looking for 15 homeowners in Deddington and Duns Tew who are looking to install a heat pump to reduce the carbon emissions associated with heating their home (or already have one) and would be interested in being part of an innovative trial.
