Innovate UK

Our aim is simple – to accelerate economic growth by stimulating and supporting business-led innovation.  Explore our strategy here, together with other information about Innovate UK.

Energy underpins almost every aspect of our daily lives. We have learnt to take it for granted and treat it as a commodity that will always be able to meet our increasing demands. However, global legislation such as the Kyoto Protocol and domestic energy policies are now making us reassess our attitude to energy and its value.

The way the world produces and uses energy is not sustainable. It not only damages our natural world through climate change and resource use, but it also affects our quality of life through cost and comfort. At Innovate UK we take these sorts of challenges and turn them into opportunities for the UK to innovate and collaborate on new and potentially world-beating technologies.
