The UK Government has made significant investments into essential research for low-carbon energy production and sustainable distribution.  The Supergen (SUstainable PowER GENeration and supply) Programme was established in 2001 by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and has just moved into its 4th phase.

This £16 million phase comprises of the following 4 multidisciplinary research hubs

Each hub will not only interact with academics but will also include crucial engagement with the wider energy sector including national and international industry, government, trade association partners,  policy and public stakeholders. 

A joint Houses of Parliament launch event, hosted by James Heappey MP, will take place on Monday 17th June 2019.  The event will introduce the Hubs and their work to a select audience and highlight the important research that has already been carried out.  The launch will also provide a valuable opportunity to network and contribute to the future work carried out.

A full press release will be available after the event.
