Who we are

The ETI is a public-private partnership between global energy and engineering companies and the UK Government. Our role is to act as a conduit between academia, industry and the government to accelerate the development of low carbon technologies. We bring together engineering projects that develop affordable, secure and sustainable technologies to help the UK address its long term emissions reductions targets as well as delivering nearer term benefits. We make targeted commercial investments in nine technology programmes across heat, power, transport and the infrastructure that links them.

Smart Systems and Heat Programme 

Phase One of our Smart Systems and Heat programme is being delivered by the Energy Systems Catapult after the transfer of our programme team into the Catapult in November 2015.
