£5.25m funding for heating and cooling efficiency study

The UK Research Council’s Energy Programme has announ-ced funding of £5.25m for a study of energy-efficient heating and cooling technologies.

The research will be carried out by the Interdisciplinary Centre for Storage, Transformation and Upgrading of Thermal Energy, which will be known as i-STUTE.

The University of Warwick will play a leading role in the project, working alongside London South Bank, Loughborough and Ulster universities.

i-STUTE director Professor Bob Critoph told H&V News the intention is to outline a strategy that will be easily understandable for consumers that will also “allow suppliers to make money”.

He stated that i-STUTE was already speaking to companies such as Dimplex, Emerson and all the major boiler manufacturers.
