Supporting SMEs

Catapults are best thought of as taskforces for putting technology to work to tackle big issues facing the UK. The Energy Systems Catapult is supporting British industry to unleash innovation and exploit the opportunities of global energy revolution.

We will be helping businesses like yours – whether big or small – along the way.

What sort of specific help can my company get?

We either offer, or plan to offer shortly, a variety of specific benefits that will be available to you in one of three delivery models:

1. Universal assistance

2. Collaborative working

3. Commercial support

To find out more about what these involve and how it could work, read our SME information leaflet.

How do I get the ball rolling?

Right now, we are early in our lifecycle, so some of the things we expect to be able to offer over the next months and years are still in the pipeline. That doesn’t stop you getting in touch – once we know about each other, co-operative possibilities abound. Of course, we hope that you can immediately see a product idea, a service idea or a specific business issue with which we might help you.

Partnerships – We already have a number of helpful partnerships in place, such as the EIC, with whom we are funding joint ventures. Find out more here.

Events – We are already delivering regular industry events. We are well connected to local business and industry organisations across the UK, so you can expect these to happen across a broad geography. Email us to discuss ways in which we can collaborate to produce an event.
