UK Energy Research Centre
How should the UK meet its future energy needs? How can the UK reduce demand? How should different supply technologies be exploited? And how can individual technologies be best combined to supply the whole country?
The UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) aims to answer these questions. Its mission is to be the UK's pre-eminent centre of research on sustainable energy systems.
To achieve this, the centre is establishing a comprehensive database of energy research, development and demonstration competences in the UK. The centre will also act as the portal for the UK energy research community to and from both UK stakeholders and the international energy research community.
Established in 2004, UKERC is not a traditional NERC collaborative centre. It is part of the £28m cross-research council programme Towards a Sustainable Energy Economy (TSEC). It is funded by NERC and two other research councils the Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC).
