ETP for Industry

Whether you are already in the energy industry, or you would like to be in it, we want to help. With access to 250 academics and 700 researchers, and over £250M of testing facilities, the ETP can provide the spark you need to get your ideas into the market. We don’t charge you for our time and we can provide business and technology support, help in finding and getting funding , and guidance to identify the right testing facilities.
Who qualifies for this support?
The broadest support is available to Scottish SMEs, and to non-Scottish SMEs who have, or want to establish, a base in Scotland. If you are not an SME, we still want to help you, but may not be able to provide direct, cost-free support.



“The Energy Technology Partnership (ETP) is now internationally recognised as the key point for accessing Scotland's broad based power and energy research collaboration which is the largest in Europe. I feel privileged to be taking over as Chairman of ETP and will be doing all I can to build on its existing areas of excellence."


David Sigsworth, Chairman of Scottish Environment Protection Agency and Chair of the ETP Advisory Group



Case study - elimpus

This company in the energy safety market approached ETP to help develop its understanding of the International Electrotechnical Commission’s (IEC) Technical standard and how it would impact on product development. ETP identified a suitable university expert, produced a detailed technical report and organised a dissemination workshop. This allowed the company to assess the changes required for it to continue selling its products in international growth markets.

Case study - Waterevolution

Waterevolution has developed a novel gray water recycling/heat recovery system. ETP provided business support by brokering engagement with Fife Council which led to a trial of four units in Fife’s flagship sustainable housing development. The company subsequently invested in their first production facility in Livingstone recruiting 8 staff. ETP continues to support the company by facilitating links to key market players and product manufacturers.

Case study - Hydrason Solutions Ltd.

Heriot-Watt University spin-out, Hydrason Solutions Ltd is developing sonar systems and data process for underwater sensing and was experiencing power output and heat dissipation issues on one of its electronic components. After scoping out the technical details, ETP project managed the work for the company, working alongside a PhD student
and his supervisor to undertake a technical analysis that identified the nature of the problem and potential solutions. Hydrason’s CEO Chris Capus said: “It was very useful to have the opportunity to look in more depth at this part of our system… and we were able to identify some useful future avenues for exploration."
