The Research Challenge

Scientist in a lab

To succeed in energy innovation, the UK must build on its world-class reputation for science and and develop novel solutions to the complex challenges facing the energy sector.

By developing and testing ground-breaking innovation, we can help deliver multiple solutions to address the energy challenge whilst building the UK’s research skills base and attractiveness to top energy talent.

Our Doctoral training programme will support the needs of PhD students thereby developing and sustaining the best talent and realising the full potential of the next generation of researchers.

ERA will help deliver our low carbon future by developing new technologies to decarbonise energy generation, our transport system and housing stock, as well as manage the emissions produced by the use of fossil fuels.

ERA is working across the breadth of Technology Readiness Levels 1-6 (TRL) so that research and development can reach the point of demonstrating effectiveness and affordability and thereby attracting investment from industry.
