This multidisciplinary consortium, working on a strategic programme of interdisciplinary research, will interact with all aspects of the PFER Challenge programme, ensuring that UK academic expertise delivers impact and UK competitive advantage through detailed engagement with the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, industry, the Energy Systems Catapult and all key stakeholders.
