The results can then be filtered by Energy Category (all records), Funding Source (only projects), Region (only projects) and Science/Technology sector (only projects); further keywords can also be used.

Results are classified by six of the content types: Data Catalogue, Projects Catalogue, Landscapes, ETI Publications, UKERC Publications and Roadmaps
