Presenting our new animation
14 Dec 2018
We are thrilled to launch our new animation. Developed as a component of the Whole Sytems Networking Fund it explains why we think initiatives like this are so important.
We'd be delighted if you could share it with a retweet!
Funded by EPSRC, the Whole Systems Networking Fund aims to improve equality, communications and collaboration between those working in the field of whole systems energy. The fund is helping to develop best practice around networking, fostering better representation of UK capacity in whole systems energy research, encouraging fresh voices and building new working relationships within the community.
The 18 projects
We are collaborating with 18 different projects each with multiple partners, to develop new ways of working across interdisciplinary and disciplinary research. The awarded projects bring new, diverse voices to the table and are moving beyond ‘business as usual’ approaches, tackling some of the geographical and/or social imbalances found in energy research in the UK. Successful projects also address gender diversity in the UK energy sector.

UKERC and 1010 are delighted to announce that ‘The Heat Network’, a project which forms part of the UKERC Whole Systems Networking Fund is now up and running. The project will use a combination of survey work, workshops and publications to for the first time pull together those researching and innovating around sustainable heating. The first step is a survey.
Ever wondered why there aren’t more women working, innovating and researching in the energy sector?
This new insight paper examines the potential for whole systems energy research to address questions of community resilience.
