Windows that act as solar panels, an engine running on landfill emissions and Europe’s biggest battery are just some of the winning projects.
Business and Energy Minister, Matthew Hancock said:
Many of these projects are not only UK firsts, but world firsts, and by supporting them at this early stage, we will ensure the UK reaps the rewards in the future.
Rob Saunders, Head of Energy at Innovate UK said:
The projects that have won funding in this first round are exactly the sort of ideas we had in mind when the energy catalyst was created. The second round is well under way and I’m looking forward to seeing UK firms come forward with more new ways of securing a reliable, low carbon and low cost energy system.
