The UK and Irish energy industries are faced with a unique set of challenges and the key to our continued success will be our ability to adapt and meet these challenges. With this aim, we are taking the lead on a wide range of research and development (R&D) ventures, including several cutting-edge demonstration projects.


Our current R&D focus is on these main areas: 

  • Smart homes 
  • Carbon capture and storage 
  • Smart electricity grids 
  • Renewable energy 
  • Customer attitudes and energy efficiency
