Smart Systems and Heat Phase 2 (SSH2) was a successor programme to Smart Systems and Heat Phase 1 (SSH1) and took the form of a £9.8m grant from the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Energy Innovation Programme to fund activity by the Energy Systems Catapult between Summer 2017 and March 2019.
The programme was set up to develop evidence on how to facilitate the take up of low-carbon heating technologies across the UK through the development of new digitally enabled services. The total funding was approximately split 70/20/10 between the three activities of the programme; the research and development winter trial, business modelling and local engagement.
As part of the grant for SSH2, the Catapult committed to deliver both an interim and final evaluation of the programme. In consultation with the programme delivery team, three core aims of the evaluation were agreed, a programme learning aim, a system learning aim and a strategic learning aim.
