The Research Councils UK Energy Programme aims to position the UK to meet its energy and environmental targets and policy goals through world-class research and training. The Energy Programme is investing more than £625 million in research and skills to pioneer a low carbon future. This builds on an investment of £839 million over the past eight years (December 2011).
Led by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the Energy Programme brings together the work of EPSRC and that of the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC).
A video providing an introduction to the RCUK Energy Programme, and how it is helping the transition to a low-carbon economy is available here.

Low Carbon Innovation Consultation offered by the National Audit Office
The National Audit Office (NAO) is offering organisations and individuals an opportunity to express their views on public sector funding for low carbon innovation. The consultation is to inform a briefing which the NAO is preparing for the Energy and Climate Change Committee. This consultation is available online on the NAO website and is specifically about innovation in low carbon technologies and not about the government’s broader energy policies.
All information regarding the consultation is held by the NAO and if you have any queries please email email@example.com
