i-STUTE is the Interdisciplinary Centre for Storage, Transformation and Upgrading of Thermal Energy.
It is funded through the UK Research Councils’ Energy Programme, a £5.3M project over 5 years involving four HEIs and an external academic, private and govermental organisation network.
The Centre will be will develop technologies to reduce energy consumption and deliver cost-effective heating and cooling which will help the UK achieve its target of a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of 80% by 2050.
We will bring together cutting-edge engineering advances with economic, behavioural and policy expertise to produce solutions that are both technically excellent but also appealing to business, end-users, manufacturers and installers.
The Centre involves technologists from the University of Warwick’s School of Engineering and researchers at Warwick Business School together with London South Bank University, the University of Ulster and Loughborough University.
