Event Details

The Knowledge Transfer Network, in partnership with Innovate UK and DFID, will be hosting a brokerage event to bring together energy innovators and organisations with expertise in developing country energy issues – the purpose being to help applicants develop relationships and proposals that are more relevant to the energy access needs of people in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia where energy grids are unreliable. 

Background: Energy Catalyst supports UK businesses, universities and research organisations to accelerate innovation to respond to global challenges and market opportunities in the energy sector. DFID, Innovate UK and EPSRC are helping UK innovators to access the huge market opportunities in developing countries for access to clean, affordable and resilient energy.

DFID support enables the co-funding of projects that address challenges that are of particular relevance to developing countries, and to this end partnerships between lead applicants and those from developing countries are encouraged. Many of the enterprises interested in participating in the Energy Catalyst are relatively new and small, and while working on ideas and innovation that are relevant to energy access challenges in developing countries, have not expanded their market or reach beyond the UK and so lack overseas contacts and partners. This brokerage event aims to address these barriers by bringing together energy innovators from UK business and academia and from developing countries with experts in developing country needs and programme operations, creating a platform to facilitate information exchange between interested parties and relevant networks.

Energy Catalyst opened on 24 April 2017. You must register before noon on 21 June 2017. You must apply before noon on 28 June 2017.

Who should attend? This event will benefit innovators and researchers submitting applications to Energy Catalyst, particularly for early-stage projects but also for Mid/Late full-stage applications, business accelerators, networks and organisations with members and contacts in developing countries and a spectrum of individual potential partners.

Partnering: We will be making a one-to-one meeting facility available to delegates. Meeting Mojo enables you to book meetings with each other online, ahead of the event. This facility will open 1 week prior to the event and registered attendees will receive login details. You can then search or browse company/delegate listings, and request one-to-one meetings with other delegates which will take place at the event. You can also use this facility to pre-book meetings with Innovate UK, DFID and KTN.
