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.

Women In Innovation Success Stories: Christina King, Tribosonics, Yorkshire & the Humber

Christina King’s innovation aims to drive emission reductions and energy savings through a unique sensing technology developed at Tribosonics. 23% of the world‘s energy is lost through tribological contact (the science of wear, friction, and lubrication). By addressing this, there is the potential to save 1.4% of GDP and 8.7% of total energy consumption, and reduce CO2 emissions.
