1 Prime Ministers Strategy Unit 24 April 2014

2 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 1 The Policy Context The Technology Programme within the innovation system The current R&D portfolio Looking to the future Contents

3 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 2 Policy Goals To put ourselves on a path to cut the UK s carbon dioxide emissions by some 60% by about 2050, with real progress by 2020; To maintain the reliability of energy supplies (making sure the lights stay on); To promote competitive markets in the UK and beyond, helping to raise the rate of sustainable economic growth and to improve our productivity; and To ensure that every home is adequately and affordably heated.

4 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 3 Multiple Drivers The business opportunity Emission reduction Renewables targets – 10% by 2010, 20% by 2020 Security of supply Playing our part in the global challenge: G8/Kyoto post 2012

5 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 4 Key Questions for the Review 1.The Governments role in ensuring that the UKs long term goal of reducing carbon emissions is met 2.Developing our market framework for delivering reliable energy supplies 3.Considerations applying to nuclear 4.Considerations applying to carbon abatement and other low carbon technologies 5.Steps towards ensuring that every home is adequately and affordably heated The Government will review the UKs progress against the medium and long-term Energy White Paper goals and the options for further steps to achieve them. The aim will be to bring forward proposals on energy policy [this] year. Energy Review: terms of reference

6 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 5 Energy Review: consultation process Consultation document published 23 January Consultation period till 14 April

7 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 6 The Policy Context The Technology Programme within the innovation system The current R&D portfolio Looking to the future Contents

8 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 7 Research councils programmes (e.g. Supergen) Technology Programme OGD programmes Carbon Trust R&D Programme International R&D – IEA, EU, etc Renewables Obligation Non Fossil Fuel Obligation Exemption from the Climate Change Levy Offshore wind capital grants scheme Marine Renewables Fund Bioenergy capital grants scheme Low Carbon Buildings Programme Hydrogen and Carbon Abatement Technology Demonstration Fund The Government provides support to low carbon energy technologies at each stage of their development The Government also support low carbon technologies through non-financial support: Reform of planning regulations for renewables (PPS 22) Committee on Radioactive Waste Management Leading international effort to establish regulations for CCS R&D Basic research Development Applied research Pre-commercial Moving towards large scale production Demonstration Early deployment of emerging technologies Tech Prog R&D is also critical to support demonstration activity

9 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 8 £70 million p.a. by 2007/8 inc fusion Gen IV advanced nuclear fission reactors - £5m p.a. Technology Programme c £20m p.a. OGD programmes (eg. DEFRA CHP = £2m 04/05) Carbon Trust R&D Programme c. £ 2 million p.a. Renewables Obligation will be worth up to around £500m 05/06 rising to £1bn by £32O million The Government provides support to low carbon energy technologies at each stage of their development The Government also support low carbon technologies through non-financial support: Reform of planning regulations for renewables (PPS 22) Committee on Radioactive Waste Management Leading international effort to establish regulations for CCS R&D Basic research Development Applied research Pre-commercial Moving towards large scale production Demonstration Early deployment of emerging technologies

10 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 9 The Technology Programme is the new(ish) mechanism which the Government uses to deliver support for collaborative research and development SR2004 commits HMG to deliver £320 million through the Technology Programme over SR2004 The new and renewable energy R&D budget is now delivered though the Technology Programme An independent Technology Strategy Board dominated by industry experts sets the priorities for each 6 monthly call £35m so far committed to low carbon energy technologies, including £11m in the November 2005 competition – now closed EPSRC co-funding Business to business and science to business collaborations Industry-Led R&D

11 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 10 The Policy Context The Technology Programme within the innovation system The current R&D portfolio Looking to the future Contents

12 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 11 The portfolio of technologies and their current state of development: RESEARCHDEVELOPMENT DEMONSTRATION DEPLOYMENT Fusion Generation IV nuclear reactors Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Bioenergy Wave and Tidal Next generation PVMicrogeneration Technologies Carbon Abatement Technologies Offshore Wind Onshore wind Intelligent Grid Management Technology Programme

13 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 12 Programme Performance Measures Technology route maps including milestones and timescales Progress against critical development issues for technologies Progress against technology cost & performance measures Demonstrable progress down research & development chain Successful exploitation outcomes

14 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 13 Wave Projects Pelamis Full Scale Demonstration (Ocean Power Delivery Limited) Pelamis sea trials (courtesy of OPD Ltd)

15 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 14 Fuel Cell Projects Development of Innovative Metal Supported IT- SOFC Technology (Ceres Power Ltd) 10-layer Ceres Power short stack prior to testing. This stack delivered 160W e at 600°C Pressurisation of IP-SOFC Technology for Second Generation Hybrid Application (Rolls Royce plc) The IP-SOFC Pressurised Rig

16 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 15 Tackling niche barriers Wind Projects Stealth Technology for Wind Turbines (BAE Systems Ltd) Stealthy Wind Turbines – addressing the radar issue (Qinetiq and SSE Ltd)

17 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 16 Building integrated renewables – PV+ Next generation PV – organics/polymers Microgeneration systems Spillover benefits – architects, engineers

18 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 17 Biomass Advanced conversion technologies Supply chain issues Biorefineries Biofuels

19 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 18 Cleaner Fossil Fuels and C02 Capture and Storage The Technologies Improved combustion efficiency (15-20% CO 2 ) Fuel switching (5- 10% CO 2 ) Carbon Dioxide pre and post combustion capture and storage (90% CO 2 )

20 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 19 Why CATs? – Fossil fuels continue to dominate world energy supplies World electricity generation (IEA WEO 2004)

21 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 20 Intelligent Networks Handling dispersed intermittent sources of electricity Enabling distributed generation Storage Demand-side management

22 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 21 The Policy Context The Technology Programme within the innovation system The current R&D portfolio Looking to the future Contents

23 Energy Industries and Technologies Unit 22 1.Hoping to continue to develop the portfolio with a Technology Programme competition in April – subject to the Technology Strategy Board 2.UK Energy Research Centres Energy Research Atlas Looking to the Future
