KIC InnoEnergy provides support for finalising and commercialising technological innovations that lead to new products and services.
Technologies that support nuclear power and renewable energy can complement each other to provide the stable, secure and low-carbon power we need. KIC InnoEnergy encourages investigation into the potential synergies between converging, general-purpose technologies that can address a variety of issues within the nuclear and renewable energy sectors. We support innovation in the following key areas:
- Advanced materials and processes, including coatings, composite materials, and high-performance materials for application in extreme environments.
- Storage technologies, including lithium ion and redox flow batteries, battery management systems and recycling, power to gas, hydrogen storage, pumped hydro, supercapacitors, flywheels, and compressed air.
- Energy efficiency in industry, including energy management sensors, heat recovery, pumps and exchangers, motors and compressors, and HVAC systems.
- Instrumentation for nuclear, including radiation monitoring, non-destructive testing, wireless sensors, fibre optic sensors, and simulation tools.
