‘Global trends in the energy sector and the importance of leading-edge innovation in renewables, storage and smart systems’

Join us for the first of a series of events to explore the global supply and demand for innovation in energy & renewable technologies as well as to showcase Cambridge’s expertise in the research, development and commercialisation of energy & renewable technologies.

The Cambridge Science Park is exploring the feasibility of establishing an Energy & Renewal Technologies Centre on the Park. The aim is to co-locate companies developing related technologies under one roof where they can share facilities, knowledge and best practice. Evidence is being gathered to support the case for this facility on the Park.
