Infrastructure

Against an overarching low carbon agenda, our mission is to support the development of UK innovation to deliver clean, accessible and secure energy & water systems through a digitally enabled construction sector and so provide smart, resilient and successful cities and communities.

We do this by simplifying the UK Innovation landscape and providing rapid transfer of high-quality information on technologies, markets, funding and partnering opportunities.

The expertise we bring spans energy systems, water, infrastructure and construction.

Infrastructure

From cutting edge solar research and battery storage development, through digital technologies for nuclear, water and construction to supporting the development of the strategic direction of the infrastructure sector, we join up the dots. We put the right people in touch with each other and make the value introductions that spark ideas.

We convene safe spaces where industry can share innovation and challenges. These include the Infrastructure Industry Innovation Partnership (i3P) and the Innovation Exchange (iX) which also draws on our unrivalled cross-sector reach for novel solutions.

We engage internationally through the Energy Catalyst programme.

Our current focus in this area

Cross-Sector Battery Systems Innovation Network

The Cross-Sector Battery Systems Innovation Network is a collaborative community of technology developers and end-users from multiple sectors.

Buildings

Our focus is on transforming the construction industry by adopting modern methods of construction, and decarbonising.

Decarbonising Ports & Harbours

The Decarbonising Ports & Harbours Innovation Network’s overarching objective is to raise the profile of the critical part ports and harbours need to play in Maritime transport’s transition to net zero by 2050 and accelerate this transition by giving clear direction.

Electromagnetic Spectrum

What makes our modern lives relatively easy, interconnected and seamless is this seldomly thought of, but very vital soft infrastructure – the electromagnetic spectrum.

Hydrogen Economy

The Hydrogen Economy Innovation Network (formerly SIG) is creating a non-competitive advisory group to pool knowledge from existing hydrogen communities to validate views on the current challenges to enabling low-carbon hydrogen production at scale and cost.

Nuclear

KTN supports activities across the nuclear landscape including existing generation, new build and decommissioning and waste management.  There are also strong links with the fusion energy community.

Infrastructure Industry Innovation Partnership (i3P)

Infrastructure Industry Innovation Partnership (i3P) is an independent innovation community governed by representatives from its member organisations.
