ORE Catapult has appointed the Universities of Strathclyde and Manchester to form the Electrical Infrastructure Research Hub.
The Hub will accelerate research and development activities, tackling the challenge of making the UK’s electrical infrastructure systems future-proof to meet the needs of the growing offshore wind, wave and tidal industries.
With a five-year investment of around £700k from ORE Catapult, and £2.4m match funding from its university partners, the Hub will address a selection of key research topics and themes, including:
- component reliability and availability;
- system and sub-system optimisation;
- smart energy systems of the future
