The EnergyREV Consortium has been formed to help drive forward research and innovation in Smart Local Energy Systems. It is funded by Innovate UK and UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) through the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund ‘Prospering from the energy revolution’. The Consortium’s research projects are producing a broad range of outputs which are intended to provide evidence of the challenges, opportunities, and models for scaling up smart local energy systems. These outputs include traditional academic research papers and also summarised and focused reports that will provide relevant information for a broad range of stakeholders and decision makers across the sector.
The EnergyREV User-Centred Interface project is a collaboration between EnergyREV and the Digital Humanities Institute. This sub-project aims to develop a useful and engaging online interface for accessing the Consortium’s academic and policy outputs. The purpose of the interface is to meet the different knowledge-access requirements of its broad range of stakeholders and decision makers.
The project employs a creative, participatory approach — from paper prototyping to usability testing — by engaging directly with Consortium members and sector stakeholders at all stages of the interface design process: requirements, information architecture, interaction, and visual design.
