Innovation is fundamental to energy system transformation and economic growth


The Energy Systems Catapult. 

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.

Capabilities

We take a whole systems approach to help build consensus on a shared sense of direction on the transition, both to inform innovation priorities and to enable integration that enhances efficiency in the energy system. We have a wide range of technical, commercial, regulatory and policy specialists with expertise across the whole energy system to help innovators overcome the barriers blocking routes to market. 

We are particularly interested to hear from you, if your expertise sit’s within one of the areas outlined below:  

  • Data Science/Machine Learning/AI
  • Systems Architecture + Systems Engineering
  • Software Development ( Developers / Dev Op's/ Scrum Masters)
  • Engineering/Modelling/Analysts
  • Consumer Insight / User Interface
  • Product Management
  • Programme & Project Manager
  • Policy /Economics
  • Business Development / Commercial
  • Operations (Finance/HR/Procurement/Legal)
