How to work with us

Energy Systems Catapult offers technical, commercial and policy expertise to drive Net Zero innovation across the whole energy system.

We are not-for-profit, independent and technology-agnostic – so are uniquely placed to help UK innovators take on the challenges that others cannot or will not tackle.

As a natural convener – we bring together a range of stakeholders, from government and industry,  academia and consultancies, to corporate enterprises and SMEs to create new markets that unleash innovation.

We use our grant-funding to develop capabilities, tools and labs that bridges the gap between government, academia and industry.

From world-class Net Zero modelling and cutting-edge systems engineering – through to digital and data science and real-world innovation trials that drive start-ups to success.

Energy Systems Catapult has built a trusted track record in delivering thought leadership, collaborative R&D and (where needed) commercial commissioning.
