Objectives The Energy Systems Catapult is the UK's technology and innovation centre set up by Innovate UK to support companies and Government in developing products and services to address the new commercial opportunities created by the transformation of UK and global energy systems (covering electricity, heat and combustible gases).

The Energy Systems Catapult works with its partners to enable the products and services that will create long-term, sustainable energy systems for the UK.

The Catapult will develop core capabilities in:

  • whole system approaches to future energy systems
  • systems integration for the introduction of new energy related products and services, including new technologies, legacy systems, business models, market mechanisms and customer engagement.
  • Themes of particular interest to the Energy Systems Catapult within which it expects to develop and disseminated knowledge with partners include:

  • Localised energy systems
  • Integration of energy storage
  • Advanced control solutions
  • Heat network solutions
  • Demand side management

  • Abstract The Catapult will:

  • focus on systems integration and deliver the frameworks, methodologies and best practices that enable and facilitate definition, design, implementation and introduction of successful solution
  • develop a whole systems modelling capability to support analysis of whole system requirements and solutions
  • build a curated set of datasets, assumptions and other inputs which will support modelling, analysis and other studies of whole system requirements, solutions and strategies
  • develop a rapid prototyping and test capability
  • provide managed access to demonstration facilities supported by processes and skills
  • build a set of resources that can be used to inform the sector on whole system market, regulatory and strategic matters and which will help assure alignment of technology direction with national requirements
  • provide evidence to support the design of appropriate Government policy and regulation
  • Publications (none)
