Offshore / Renewables

The KTN supports the offshore wind industry as a major contributor to the ORE Catapult innovation hub funded by BEIS as well as supporting the companies who are making applications for funding for offshore renewables.

The team has helped with introductions and collaborations for projects with the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) installing offshore energy.

The KTN has also supported three overseas missions to Canada, China, South Korea and Japan to establish the potential for UK companies to work in collaboration: from this we have a Memorandum of Understanding from a Japanese research centre and joint projects with the US.

KTN sits on the advisory board of The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Renewable Energy Northeast Universities.

KTN is helping the British Antarctic Survey with a search for innovators

The British Antarctic Survey (BAS) is looking to purchase innovative solutions to help meet its net zero carbon target. Two challenging asks have been listed on KTN’s Innovation Exchange.  First, BAS is looking for solutions to help decarbonise the polar vehicles used at its Sky Blu Logistics Facility.  And secondly, the organisation is seeking solutions which decarbonise its energy demand for heating, hot water and power at two of its island research stations – Bird Island and Signy.
