Digital solutions sought to reduce energy demand and carbon production

Funding worth £400,000 is being offered for research projects to explore the role of digital technologies in supporting a data-enabled net zero transition

UK researchers offered up to £2m to explore zero carbon hydrogen

Proposals that will develop solutions to address the challenges in integrating hydrogen into whole energy systems will also be supported

UK researchers invited to partner with US on nuclear energy

A share of £2.5m of funding is available for topics including molten salts, light-water reactor fuels and advanced small modular reactors

Pound coins
Up to £1.5m on offer for grid-scale energy storage technologies

Interested areas include mechanical storage systems, compressed air energy storage, storage of heat, hydrogen or natural gas and heat pumps or pumped heat electrical storage

Fresh £1m funding to boost equality and diversity in the energy research community

Teams must have experience of researching energy as part of engineering or the physical, geological, biological and social sciences as well as equality, diversity and inclusion in an applied context

UK researchers offered £1m to collaborate with Japan on civil nuclear energy

Proposals must address one of the following topics: radioactive waste treatment, robotic and autonomous systems for decommissioning, fuel debris materials and decommissioning technology

Wave energy
New £7.5m wave of funding to develop marine energy technologies

The projects aim to overcome challenges of devices that capture the energy generated by waves and convert it into a renewable source of electricity
