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.
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.
