Innovate UK invite registrations for their technical feasibility early-stage awards, under the energy catalyst programme. These support projects that explore and test the technical potential of an early-stage innovative idea or concept through technical feasibility studies in the energy sector, with the aim to establish if a pre-industrial concept is ready for further technology development.
The catalyst aims to speed up the commercialisation of UK energy innovation by focusing on the following three challenges: low carbon, security of supply and affordability. Innovations may include the following:
•enhancement or alternative applications of existing technologies;
•development of components, sub-systems or systems;
•integrated whole-system approaches;
•enabling technologies for the energy system.
Registration closes on 7 September 2016. The competition closes on 14 September 2016.
