How ERA Works

Computer motherboard

ERA is focused around three core themes, selected in terms of their research and economic potential:

Geo-Energy Systems Accelerator

Focusing on next generation gaseous related technologies including geo-energy and energy storage to help to decarbonise the energy generation and transport sectors.

Integrated Energy Systems Accelerator

Delivering integrated energy solutions addressing energy intensive sectors such as transport and buildings through manufacturing.

Thermal Energy Accelerator

Leading the development and integration hot and cold energy technologies, delivering domestic and grid-scale applications and innovative solutions to heat homes and buildings.


The three themes are focused on delivering tangible research outcomes with practical benefits. Demonstrators will test the potential of the new technology ERA produces to be delivered effectively and affordably.
