Energy Systems Catapult’s mission is to unleash innovation and open new markets to capture the clean growth opportunity. We work with innovators in industry, government, academia and research to identify and overcome systemic barriers and open new markets to deliver the innovative products, services and value chains required to transform the UK energy system to meet carbon reduction targets at the lowest cost.

Our Approach
We do this by taking a Whole Systems approach to working with innovators on a wide range of projects, using our unique capabilities and assets to deliver impact. The Catapult works with individual companies, in partnerships or as part of consortia. We are taking a leading role in government taskforces on the potential of data in the energy sector and the impact of electric vehicles on the power system. We collaborate on CR&D and bid funding opportunities; connecting with industry partners, investors or test facilities; and convene with domestic and international stakeholders including governments and regulators.In addition, we have developed specialisms in a number of key areas including energy services, exploring how innovation can help tackle fuel poverty, and how markets, policy and regulation need to work together to deliver innovation from a Whole Systems perspective.
