The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) is a £400m industry and UK government partnership into low carbon energy system planning and technology development.
Its mission is to accelerate the development, demonstration and eventual commercial deployment of a focused portfolio of energy technologies, which will increase energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help achieve energy and climate change goals.
Most stakeholders agree that the ETI has made a significant contribution to low carbon energy innovation over the last 10 years. As it approaches the end of its operational life in 2019 when its funding finishes, we feel there is a rich legacy to the ETI’s operation in addition to its projects and insights. We have undertaken a staff and stakeholder review to identify the lessons learnt and to share the knowledge we have accumulated over the last decade to help inform the development of innovation bodies in the future.
