Cost reduction programme ‘could slash nuclear risks, costs and duration’

The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) says it is essential for all organisations involved to work together towards this goal

Suppliers ‘must rethink the way they sell heat’

Consumers could be ready to move to low carbon heat technologies if the industry changes how it presents its products and services. That’s according to a new report from the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI), which suggests the emergence of smart meters and ‘connected home’ data could allow suppliers to sell energy on the basis of […]

Jo Coleman awarded OBE for low carbon tech work

The Energy Technologies Institute’s (ETI) Strategy Director has been awarded an OBE in recognition of her work in the field of low carbon technology and innovation. Through her career, Jo Coleman has created strong partnerships and modelling systems and had a significant impact on the advancement of developing ways to decarbonise the UK’s energy sector. […]

£1m programme for efficient energy system

Four projects worth more than £1 million have been launched to develop a system that enables efficient use of energy whilst meeting consumers’ needs. The cash from the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI), which is a public-private partnership between global industries and the UK Government, will be used for what it calls a “smart energy system”, […]

New project to study householders’ behaviour on energy usage

A £3 million project has been launched to study the behaviour of householders on heat and energy consumption in the UK. The research, commissioned and funded by the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI), is part of its £100 million Smart Systems and Heat (SSH) technology programme, which aims to design the “first of its kind” smart […]

£20m fund for next generation CCS technologies

The UK Government has launched a £20 million investment to develop next generation carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies for gas power stations. The money, provided by the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI), will fund a 5MW CCS plant capable of capturing up to 95% of carbon emissions. CCS is a technology which helps capture carbon […]

CCS cash will build up UK ‘expertise’

Carbon Capture and Storage is a “key priority” for the UK and the Government’s billion pound support fund is timely, according to a UK development group. The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI), a public-private partnership which invests in new technologies, says there is now a great opportunity for the UK to build its expertise in the […]

UK energy needs "essential" new nuclear

Ramping up nuclear power in the UK is “essential” for keeping the lights on. This is according to new research from Oxford University’s Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment (SSEE), which claims a £100 billion, world-leading nuclear industry can be achieved. The SSEE says remodelling the UK’s energy infrastructure is “urgent”, with nuclear playing […]

Urgent nuclear planning required or risk jobs and security, says report

Government must put in place a “long-term strategic approach” if nuclear power is to play a significant part in the UK energy future. That was the message from a report released yesterday which warns energy security and jobs could be at risk if the correct pathways are not followed. ‘The Future of Nuclear Energy in […]

Floating turbines may get tested at Wave Hub

The Energy Technologies Institute is examining the possibility of trialling floating wind turbines at a testing site in the South West. The ETI says the unorthodox wind turbine could maximise the potential of the UK’s windy coastline and bring generation costs for renewables down. Should the project get the green light, the ETI will install […]
