End Use Energy Demand Technology

The UK Research and Innovation Energy Programme, primarily via EPSRC and ESRC, have now funded the Centre for Research in Energy Demand Solutions (CREDS) as part of the second phase of strategy to support the broad community of researchers and innovators in energy demand in the UK.

EPSRC is looking to fund research proposals concerning end use energy demand, investing an additional £10M in research projects aligned to, but not duplicating, the aims and objectives of CREDS. Proposals are invited from applicants which show a clear complementarity to the centre and should include at least one investigator with direct links to the centre.

Proposals will be subject to peer review followed by a prioritisation panel to decide funding. Strategic input from the Leader of CREDS, Professor Nick Eyre, will be taken at the prioritisation panel, but will not form part of the assessment of quality of the proposals.
