The Technology Strategy Board and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) are to invest jointly up to £3m in technical feasibility studies to stimulate innovation and support the development and commercialisation of emerging energy technologies.
We have identifies the following as areas where targeted investment is timely and potentially of high impact:
• Improved integration of energy storage technologies into the energy system
• Novel low-carbon heat technologies
• Novel thermodynamic cycles
• Innovations that can deliver a step change in the cost or performance of low carbon sources of energy
Projects must be led by a UK business and may be developed by a single company or be collaborative with other companies and/or universities. Proposals should be for feasibility studies and should be of a maximum of one year duration. The competition for feasibility studies opens on 10 June 20132 The deadline for registration is noon on 17 July 2013, and the deadline for applications is noon on 24 July 2013.
