Claire Perry announces:
The Start of a Green Revolution

3 April 2019

 

Claire Perry announced funding for four leading edge demonstrator projects to jump start the energy revolution on 3 April 2019 with the following words:

"We are at the start of a green revolution as we move to more digital, data-driven smart systems that will bring us cleaner and cheaper energy. These projects, backed by government funding, are set to spark a transformation and change the way we interact with energy for the better as part of our modern Industrial Strategy. We're excited to see how these businesses and project partners reveal how innovative tech, such as energy storage, heat networks and electric vehicles, can set us on the path to a smarter energy future. This is tomorrow's world, today."

 

Rob Saunders, Deputy Challenge Director, UK Research and Innovation said:

"We all need energy systems that are cheaper, cleaner and consumer-friendly. We have a great opportunity with these demonstrators to show just how innovation can deliver this energy ambition for the future. Supported by the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, these projects can drive investment, create high-quality jobs and grow companies with export potential."

Smart Grid Projects

As this new funding is about Smart Grids, whose purpose is to decarbonise electricity, heating and transport, it is inevitable that heat pumps are key elements in these four projects.
