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:
This programme aims to bring together the systems that connect infrastructure – transport, utilities, communications and environmental management – to enable a better understanding of how they are affected by our changing environment and to develop opportunities for the UK economy.
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.
European Research Area (ERA-NET) on Coordinating Action in Plant Sciences (ERA-CAPS) aims to increase European and international collaboration to create and coordinate sustainable transnational plant science research programmes.
