This project, funded by advantage West Midlands and the European Regional Development Fund, involves a £9.5m capital investment in research infrastructure relating to the development and demonstration of energy efficient technologies. The new facilities and equipment can be accessed by any interested academics and businesses. The investment aims to develop and promote a regional hub for academic and industrial expertise in energy efficiency and demand reduction as part of the Government’s mission to achieve a strong knowledge-based economy.
The project comprises 10 workstreams (listed in the navigation bar to your left) spanning the Universities for Warwick and Birmingham which fit within the following themes:
- Electricity, Efficiency of Energy Conversion and Power Distribution
- Efficient Fuel Combustion for Transport and Power
- Hybrid Electric Powertrain Technology
- Sustainable Thermal Technology & Buildings
- Energy Policy
