This research area focuses on the study of chemical phenomena associated with charge transfer, charge separation and electrochemical reactions at interfaces.
Research into energy demand and its reduction through technical and socio-economic measures. It includes research in the context of the built environment, transport, heat, industrial processes and products.
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) energy and decarbonisation theme aims to position the UK to meet its energy and environmental targets and policy goals through world-class research and training.
The goal is to secure a low-carbon future through the creation of reliable, economically viable energy systems while protecting the natural environment.
This research area assesses the effects of decarbonisation on the existing energy transmission and distribution networks and how future network technologies will deal with these challenges.
This research area covers the study of materials and systems which store electrochemical, thermal or kinetic energy for later use.
This area looks at theories, methods and tools for generating, modelling, optimising, simulating and reasoning about complex engineered systems.
The vision for engineering capability is to identify and tackle fundamental engineering research challenges with the potential for lasting benefit to the UK.
The SDTaP programme supports the development of a safe and secure Internet of Things (IoT). This is achieved through investment into:
The Digital Twins theme worked with colleagues across UKRI and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to coordinate the UKRI strategy in support of the development of the UK national capability in digital twinning and cyber-physical infrastructure.
Impact acceleration accounts (IAAs) are strategic awards providing funding to research
organisations to use creatively for a wide range of impact activities.
