Our offer to innovators
As an expert, independent authority working with researchers, industry and government, the Energy Systems Catapult aims to clear the barriers blocking innovators from bringing new products, services and business models to market.
We offer innovators unique capabilities and assets, including:
- whole systems modelling and analysis – to better understand how innovations can best contribute to the energy transition and deliver most economic value
- systems integration – to better align innovation activities, products and services with regulators, policy makers, industry incumbents, local authorities, investors and potential future system architectures and business models; while helping assess the potential risks, benefits and economic impacts of innovations and develop associated business cases
- test and demonstration – to help innovators develop new technologies, products, services and business models
- stakeholder services – to provide targeted knowledge to support innovators in navigating the complex energy market.
Together these capabilities and assets will help the ESC in providing a clear innovation ’pathway’ that will lead to greater investor confidence, improved clarity on funding priorities and more innovations accelerating to market.
The ESC is also playing a central coordinating role in the UK Government’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund – Prospering from the Energy Revolution.
