Innovate UK




Innovation from within and outside the energy sector is key to addressing global challenges of sustainable, affordable, and secure energy for all. Innovate UK and the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) work closely with each other to connect and fund new ideas, technologies, products and services to help companies in their first steps along the innovation journey towards commercialisation.

  • Innovate UK and DECC connect and fund hundreds of companies through their innovation programmes that address the challenges our energy systems face whilst also providing significant commercial opportunity to UK plc. The aim of their session at All-Energy was to link up innovative companies with potential customers, partners and follow on investment, through exciting and fast paced pitching and networking sessions. Attendees learnt about the market opportunities that have been identified, how the companies are delivering value, what they are looking for as a next step and had the chance to meet with those pitching.

    A directory of the projects that were pitched, as well as a number of others that were unable to make the day, has been published and was available onsite.
