Sustainable Nuclear and Renewable Convergence

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.
