Scottish Centre for Innovation in Energy Storage


The Centre for Innovation in Energy Storage (CIES) will bring together academia and industry to address one of the world’s most important technology challenges; the efficient storage of renewable energy.  The aim of CIES is to establish transformational collaboration between universities and businesses. CIES presents a unique opportunity that will address both Scottish Government’s Energy Strategy and priorities and the UK’s Industrial Strategy.  The Innovation Centre will have three elements: an Academic Collaboration based in the partner universities; an Innovation Facility based on The Eden Innovation Campus; and an Energy Storage Research Cluster housed within a new Interdisciplinary Energy Research Centre on the North Haugh Campus.


A two-day meeting hosted at the University of St Andrews incorporating a round table discussion focusing on industrial engagement and a one day conference seeking to build a Scottish-based academic community was supported by the Scottish Funding Council (SFC Project code: H18018)
