Flexible Technology Options: Priorities for Innovation
Looks at how technologies could help manage intermittency such as electrical interconnection, demand side participation, energy storage and flexible thermal generation. Identifies priorities for innovation.
Energy Storage in the UK
The report, published in June 2011 presents a strategic view of the opportunities for electrical and thermal storage to provide a reliable energy supply, setting-out the nature and scale of the challenges that will be faced.
Analysis of Energy Systems Scenarios
ERP’s report Energy Innovation Milestones to 2050 built on an analysis of public and private sector scenarios for the UK’s energy system, bringing out some of the common themes and areas of uncertainty.
Innovation Milestones to 2050
The aim of the ERP “Innovation Milestones to 2050” project was to develop a shared understanding of what current analysis tells us about the technology development milestones and critical decision points for the likely key components of the energy system in 2050.
The Energy Research Partnership, Energy Technologies Institute and Royal Academy of Engineering organised a workshop to examine the role of heat in the UK’s energy system.
Energy Technologies Matrix
In this project, the status and development needs of 150 specific technologies were studied, to aid public and private sector decision makers in the targeting of energy RDD&D support.
UK Energy Innovation
Brings together previous ERP work to highlight recommendations to ensure that the UK will have the technologies available to meet the daunting challenge set by climate change.
