The Supergen Energy Storage Network+ connects and serves stakeholders across the whole energy community, advancing and championing UK energy storage research and deployment.
A major deliverable for the Supergen Network+ is its flexible funding scheme. A total of £410,000 is available over the next four years to support Early Career Researchers (ECRs) development through travel, and conference grants, feasibility studies and research projects that will enhance existing knowledge to facilitate industrial, policy or international impact.
The development of energy storage technologies is vital to the UK’s low carbon energy networks, lowering carbon emissions to Net Zero by 2050 and addressing uncertainties supply and demand. The research challenge identified to accelerate the development and implementation of the technologies is Cost Effective and Resource Efficient Large Scale Energy Storage.
