Institute for Energy & EnvironmentLow Carbon Power & Energy Partnership

Security, affordability, sustainability - the need to address the energy trilemma has never been greater. The Low Carbon Power & Energy partnership brings together leading experts in industry and academics to tackle challenges. 

The challenges for utility companies are numerous and need to be addressed in innovative ways to deliver national zero carbon plans. By looking at the entire project lifecycle, from how to manage a diverse and ageing asset, to ways of deploying new technologies, the Low Carbon, Power & Energy Partnership contributes to delivering low carbon, low cost energy, as well as sustainable value for investors.

ScottishPower and SSE have partnered with the University of Strathclyde to form the Low Carbon Power & Energy Partnership. Undertaken within the University‚Äôs Technology & Innovation Centre (TIC), this initiative addresses renewable energy challenges and brings together the three parties to solve common power industry problems, with cost of energy reduction and revenue growth as the central pillars.

The partnership, first started in 2013, demonstrates how different stakeholders can work together on key industry challenges. Over the last decade, many projects and outputs have led to significant improvements in the industry, including the more efficient running of both onshore and offshore wind farms.
