Energy Technologies Institute

The ETI is a partnership between global energy and engineering companies – BP, Caterpillar, EDF, E.ON, Shell & Rolls-Royce – and the UK Government. It’s role is to act as an important link between academia, industry and government to accelerate the development of low carbon technologies by bringing together engineering projects that develop affordable, secure and sustainable technologies to help the UK address its long term emissions reductions targets as well as delivering nearer term benefits.

It’s complementary programmes of Energy Storage & Distribution (ESD) and Smart Systems and Heat (SSH) are investigating the challenges involved in transitioning energy systems and networks.

ESD is focused on how to move energy economically and efficiently to where and when it is needed. This is through the adaption and development of network designs to enable the delivery of a cost effective and secure low carbon energy system in the UK. The programme involves developing new infrastructure approaches and demonstrating new infrastructure technologies.

SSH is aiming to create future-proof and economic local heating solutions for the UK. This is by connecting together the understanding of consumer needs and behaviour with the development and integration of technologies and new business models. This will help to deliver enhanced knowledge amongst industry and the public sector to help develop industry and investor confidence to implement a UK heat transition from 2020.

Evidence to support change needs to be based on sound robust data and appropriate tools. The portfolio of projects across both programmes seeks to support and address these transition challenges.

Eliminating carbon emissions from UK homes is more cost effective than making deeper cuts in other sectors, according to analysis by the ETI « ETI
