Universal Support for Innovators

Innovation is crucial to transforming the UK energy system to meet carbon reduction targets and achieve our clean growth ambitions. Yet many UK innovators face systemic barriers preventing products, services and business models getting to market at scale.

Energy Systems Catapult is home to the Energy Launchpad delivered across three tiers: Universal, Incubation and Acceleration and a network of delivery partners, such as pre-existing incubators, to help innovators to establish, develop and grow their businesses.

Our Approach


The front door to Energy Systems Catapult for SMEs, helping newcomers gain insight about the UK energy system and the Catapult, find partners, access events and workshops, plus sign-posting to: funding calls, investors and international opportunities.


Universal Support will soon be available to all SMEs via our a new online gateway.
