The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council under the Research Council UK’s energy programme and the Department of Science and Technology, New Delhi, jointly invite proposals for their UK-India partnership in smart energy grids and energy storage technologies.
This seeks to strengthen collaboration between UK and Indian research institutions within an overarching focus on research relating to smart energy grids and energy storage technologies. Proposals must address one of the following areas: appropriate distributed storage technologies, on/off grid energy systems, DC networks, control and communications. The costs for UK institutions will be met by EPSRC, and those for Indian institutions will be met by DST. EPSRC will contribute up to £5 million for this call over a three-year period with matched resources from DST.
