Work begins on powering a sustainable future for the UK

Work is getting underway to take the UK into a significantly more sustainable way of meeting its energy needs for the future.

Four Consortia, set up earlier this year under the SUPERGEN initiative, will now start working at ways of improving the UK's renewable power generation and supply systems. These collaborations are covering the areas of Marine Energy, Networks & Power Control, Hydrogen Energy & Storage and Biomass & Biofuels.

SUPERGEN is managed by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.

The inauguration keynote address will be given by Stephen Timms MP, Minister for Energy, e-Commerce and Postal Services.

The SUPERGEN initiative was launched in September 2001. It is investing more than 25M over five years in sustainable power generation. These four virtual centres are the first to be funded through this initiative and each will run for four years.

This research cuts across many disciplines incorporating political, social, environmental and economic factors covering climate change, fossil fuel extraction rates, emissions control and increasing public awareness of environmental concerns.

The multidisciplinary nature of this research is reflected in the fact that the EPSRC is managing the SUPERGEN initiative working with the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).

Each Consortia brings together leading researchers working alongside industry. A key element of the SUPERGEN philosophy is that interaction with industry will lead to "real world" problems being addressed.

It will also be announced at the event that the Carbon Vision Partnership will be investing 4 6 M over the next 3 4 years in R&D focused on the generation and supply of low carbon power. This investment will be channelled through SUPERGEN, and will increase the R&D investment in this key
