The broad focus for the ETP covers four main areas:
Deepening and broadening existing relationships and partnerships across ETP members to promote increased collaboration, thereby building additional energy related RD&D capacity in Scotland.
Promoting the considerable expertise and capabilities within the ETP to develop new strategic partnerships with industry, academia and others.
Projecting the scale and expertise of the ETP on the international stage in order to promote new outreach and knowledge exchange opportunities.
Connecting the work of the ETP with Scottish Policy and economic development opportunities for Scotland.
With around 250 academics and 600 researchers, the Energy Technology Partnership (ETP) is the largest, most broad based power and energy research partnership in Europe.
ETP members currently lead or participate in energy related RD&D programmes and investments valued in excess of £300 million funded through Research Council UK, industry and government.
The members of the ETP are active across the spectrum of energy sectors (oil & gas, power generation, renewables) and also across all aspects of the RD&D pipeline, from conceptual and feasibility studies through to applied research, testing, development, demonstration and supporting commercial deployment.
The partners have strong industrial and academic links throughout the UK and internationally, with a track record for delivering successful commercialisation of new technologies through clearly focussed demonstration and development strategies underpinned by world-class research.
