Details

Following a methodology pilot phase in 2016 to 2018, BEIS commissioned a consortium led by Vivid Economics to provide analysis on future energy innovation needs. The work, and the suite of reports, is referred to as the Energy Innovation Needs Assessments (EINAs).

The EINAs take a whole-system view of the energy sector and provide evidence and analysis on:

  • the role of different technologies in the UK’s future energy system
  • potential domestic and export growth opportunities
  • where innovation support and investment for those technologies could deliver the greatest benefits

A set of sub-theme reports supports the overview.
