Years Active: 2004-2019

The Technology and Policy Assessment (TPA) team has been part of UKERC since the centre was established in 2004 and is now in its third phase, which started in 2014. The aim of the TPA is to conduct systematic reviews of the evidence, supplemented by primary research and wider stakeholder engagement where required, to address contentious issues in the energy policy arena. The process for selecting topics for TPA projects is described in the document below.

In Phase III of UKERC the TPA team will also be developing a methodology for rapid evidence reviews, described in the document below. In addition, future work from the TPA will have more emphasis than previously on support for, and integration with, the UKERC research programme, the wider energy research community and external organisations.
