Harwell Campus has created what it calls a Technical Living Lab where energy innovators can test their ideas with its world-leading technology.

Harwell is inviting those with technology products with environmental benefits such as connected and autonomous travel, green fuel solutions, and integrated energy systems, to us its space and equipment to trial their innovations.

It will also allow innovators to collaborate and help get their products to market with the help of expertise in campus’s EnergyTec Cluster, which involves 59 pioneering energy organisations.

Emma Southwell Sander, Harwell EnergyTec Cluster manager said: “An increased push for energy efficiency, renewable energy technology, electric mobility along with the growing digitalisation movement and a universal carbon pricing structure would speed up a carbon free future.

“To be successful, we need to create an environment where passionate innovators can collaborate, test and get their solutions into market quickly.” 

Harwell Campus director Dr Barbara Ghinelli, said: “With its Technical Living Lab status, world-leading facilities and diverse knowledge and skills base, Harwell can be a driving force in helping the UK realise its national carbon targets and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to almost zero by 2050.”

Harwell launched the initiative at its Clean Energy Conference on January 23.
