Energy Systems Catapult

Energy Systems Catapult was set up to accelerate the transformation of the UK's energy system and ensure UK businesses and consumers capture the opportunities of clean growth on the way to Net Zero.

The Catapult is an independent, not-for-profit centre of excellence that bridges the gap between industry, government, academia and research. We take a whole-systems view of the energy sector, helping us to identify and address innovation priorities and market barriers, in order to decarbonise the energy system at the lowest cost.

Our Mission
To unleash innovation and open new markets to capture the clean growth opportunity.

Strategic Objectives
That it becomes easy and desirable for people to decarbonise their homes
Dozens of local areas have developed robust plans to get to Net Zero (and funding is in place to support the implementation of the plans)
New markets have been introduced to unlock the potential of new technologies in local areas, and decarbonising complex sites has become easy
Digital technology is being integrated into the energy system so it benefits consumers, reduces system costs and facilitates the transition to Net Zero
Companies and Government adopt a whole system approach to Net Zero, with ESC as a key partner in helping UK businesses grow in the UK and internationally
