The Power Networks Demonstration Centre is a venture between the University of Strathclyde, Scottish Enterprise, the Scottish Funding Council, Scottish Power and Scottish and Southern Energy aimed at accelerating the adoption of novel research and technologies into the electricity industry.
Building the next generation of electricity networks requires collaborating teams; we contribute to this diversity by employing staff with diverse academic and industrial backgrounds as well as collaborating in every stage of R&D with all our members. This pooling capacity added to PNDC’s unique facilities allows us to play a key role in the development of our industry. The centre is part of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
