UK Awards $38M in Energy Technology R&D
Forty new technologies have won funding through the first round of Innovate UK’s Energy Catalyst. The Energy Catalyst has been established by Innovate UK, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) to accelerate innovation in the energy sector.
Among those companies receiving a share of $38 million of government funding is Cambridge-based Nyak Technology, which has been awarded almost $311,000 to help develop an organic solar cell that could be used on windows.
Another winner, Oaktec, will use the $342,000 it has received to test the feasibility of its Pulse-R engine system, which can use the untreated gas from landfill sites to power a self-supercharged biogas engine.
