Energy Systems Catapult has created a range of Service Platforms that are a route for innovators and other energy sector stakeholders to work with the Catapult and access our unique Capabilities and Assets.
Service Platforms can draw on Capabilities and Assets from across the Catapult to help innovators access our extensive set of insights and evidence, collaborate on projects, or test, integrate and scale new products, services and business models.
Platforms also work to convene and collaborate with stakeholders from across the energy sector – including government, regulators, academia, industry, SMEs and innovators.
In consultation with innovators and other stakeholders, Platforms can find the right combination of:
- Expert and independent whole systems modelling, analysis, evidence and insights;
- Tailored incubation and acceleration support for innovators to help address systemic barriers, de-risk innovation, help businesses scale and secure investment;
- Test and demonstration of innovations in real-world conditions or under simulated future market conditions in collaboration with regulators and government;
- Collaboration on CR&D and bid funding opportunities; connecting with industry partners, investors or test facilities; or convening with domestic and international stakeholders including governments and regulators.
