Innovation is fundamental to energy system transformation and economic growth


About us The Energy Systems Catapult supports innovators in unleashing opportunities from the transition to a clean, intelligent energy system. Part of a network of world-leading centres set up by the government to transform the UK’s capability for innovation in specific sectors and help drive future economic growth. By taking an independent, whole energy systems view, we work with stakeholders across the energy sector (consumers, industry, academia and government) to identify innovation priorities, gaps in the market and overcome barriers to accelerating the decarbonisation of the energy system at least cost. In doing so, we seek to open up routes to market for innovators, as well as supporting them to understand how their products, services and value propositions fit into the transforming energy system. image We are a public-private funded, non-profit organisation that seeks to leverage our core grant funding with the private sector to enhance our capabilities and directly support innovators across the whole energy sector – from power, heat, transport and industry to energy infrastructure. We support innovation and share best practice at local, regional, city, national and international levels. We have 100+ staff based in our Birmingham headquarters coming from a variety of commercial, policy and technical backgrounds. The multi-disciplinary skills of our team include experts in systems and solutions architecture, market modelling and analysis, smart and multi-vector energy systems, local area planning, data science and machine learning, consumer insight, behavioural science, business model design, systems engineering and integration and programme management.
