Businesses who wish to improve energy efficiency and renewable energy use or who are interested in energy innovation and collaboration can benefit from new support on offer from The University of Nottingham.
The new Energy Innovation and Collaboration team are ideally placed to forge links between businesses and world-class academics, researchers and graduate talent in the energy field at the university; while close links to the Energy Research Accelerator (ERA) will allow unprecedented access to the best energy research expertise and facilities across the Midlands.
This support has been made possible thanks to EU funding, matched by the University, with the aim of generating measurable cost savings for the business as well as an overall reduction in carbon emissions with a positive impact on the environment.*
Please come along to find out more about what’s on offer and network with the new team.
