We asked innovators how best to unlock energy knowledge – you said: “existing knowledge needs to be easier to access. One more wiki won’t help”. The Innovate-UK-inspired Energy Knowledge eXchange™ is free to innovators, offering key research, energy network and project data. Please keep using this prototype. Tell us your experience – help improve EKX.

Thank you for activating the Energy Knowledge eXchange (EKX).
Please install the relevant EKX extension below to your Chrome or Firefox* browser to get started.

Download from Chrome Store.​ Then revisit this page to explore free data and research access, with our five step Battery Systems challenge:

  1. Keeping this page open, get to know EKX by clicking the blue button in your browser (blue icon, top right of Chrome). You’ll see tabs like “Pages” and “Data” and space for results to show links.
  2. Try clicking on the EKX Links – are any new pages you see relevant? EKX is a quick research and data-link finder- you can use it on any energy web page you’re on, so remember to re-click the EKX button on each new page.
  3. Now open EKX and click at the bottom where it says ‘Not seeing results you want?’. This kind of page enables you to kick-off a fresh EKX search: enter e.g. “battery storage”. Browse some of the results pages links / data links, then use the EKX button.
  4. Try some normal browsing, i.e. using your usual search engine to go to any innovation site, then try the EKX button whilst on the sites you find. Do you get good new links?
  5. Please take a few minutes to complete our survey to help us unlock the power of EKX and provide a richer stream of data.


Further information on EKX

We asked innovators how best to unlock knowledge – you said: “existing energy websites need to be easier to access. ‘One more wiki won’t help!’”

We’re working to build EKX into energy data websites – two major databases are live and another will be linked soon. Until then, extensions help us index energy data on existing websites, like search engines do, learning from clicks or search terms, without further confusing innovators with ‘yet another wiki’.

The EKX button protects your privacy, only learning about energy-related links and only using data in agreed, limited ways. EKX does not access your browser history. It does nothing at all unless you keep clicking it open.

Soon EKX will be even easier to access. Knowledge links you see in the button today will be woven into many energy websites tomorrow. EKX will keep on learning, linking many jigsaw pieces of energy data into coherent, accessible knowledge journeys. Until then, you can keep your EKX button, or disable/remove it. We hope you keep clicking! We can keep improving the links it offers. Together we can improve EKX, offering you more access to vital energy knowledge. See how one of our partners is using EKX.


Keep informed

* ‘Can I use another browser?’ Not just yet, although it’s in the plan. Currently, EKX testing is open to Chrome and Firefox users. Please tell us which browser you prefer to use and be counted in the next All-browser Beta trial.
