About ETP

The Energy Technology Partnership (ETP) is an alliance of twelve independent Scottish Universities, engaged in world class energy related Research, Development and Demonstration (RD&D).

ETP is the largest power and energy research partnership in Europe and promotes greater levels of collaboration between universities and industry to deliver unparalleled energy capability and core research strengths across a broad range of energy technologies but with a current focus on Wind Energy, Marine Energy, Grid, Power Systems & Networks, Solar Energy, Bio-Energy, Heat Energy, Energy Systems, Carbon Capture and Storage, Energy Conversion and Storage, Energy Utilisation in Buildings and Oil & Gas.

Coupled with research pooling, this provides an integrated energy technologies community that is providing strong leadership in the UK/EU/global energy arenas. The cohesion displayed by the Energy Technology Partnership is exemplary and provides a strong basis for collaboration with a wide variety of business, public sector and other partners. This has enabled ETP to build on its foundation of research excellence and increase its impact in the areas of Knowledge Exchange and Skills.

ETP’s network of Business Development Managers can share the emergent best practice between academia and industry and help Scottish SMEs identify the best possible support available.
