Energy Storage and its Applications

The ground-breaking Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy Storage and its Applications at the Universities of Sheffield and Southampton opened in October 2014, funded by the EPSRC, to tackle industrial challenges and develop new technologies and skills that will enable the UK to meet its low carbon targets.

Visit us at the NEC Birmingham from 3rd - 5th October 2017, meet our students and learn how we can add value to your R&D in energy storage. More show information at our Events page

One of the UK's largest battery-based energy storage facilities has been connected to the grid as part of new research led by the University of Sheffield on the growing area of energy storage.

The Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy Storage and its Applications at the Universities of Sheffield and Southampton opened in October 2014. The Centre tackles industrial challenges and develops new technologies and leaders that will enable the UK to meet its low carbon targets. Our students enjoy an enhanced stipend* of £18,000 per year. 

The Centre received substantial funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council in 2014 having identified energy storage as a UK priority area with a major skills shortage.
