Technology-Led Innovation

As an innovation partner with industry, Narec’s confidential development and testing capabilities provide a huge draw to project developers and companies operating in the low carbon energy and electrical network supply chains.

We work with partners to generate new intellectual property for subsequent commercialisation and are actively looking to grow our R&D portfolio, through partnerships with industry and universities in the delivery of publicly-funded programmes and contract research

We help businesses to address the technical challenges and mitigate the commercial and operational risk from the deployment of new technologies out in the field.

Advancing Renewable Energy

Narec has invested over £150 million to create UK’s national translational research centre for accelerating the deployment of offshore renewable energy technologies.

Our multidisciplinary team of scientists and engineers operate some of Europe’s largest translational research, development and testing facilities for offshore wind, wave, tidal and electrical network technologies.

Clients and collaborators include: project developers, utilities, major manufacturers, universities, research organisations and supply chain companies.

We play an important role in supporting delivery of the government’s policy objectives and in attracting and anchoring internationally mobile investment to the UK.

Our vision is to be recognised world-wide as the UK’s leading centre for advancing the development and integration of renewable energy through technology-led innovation.

This will facilitate a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and increase energy security whilst minimising the costs to customers. In establishing this position, Narec will stimulate UK investment as companies and other organisations will be drawn in to take advantage of Narec’s resources and expertise.

By addressing these issues Narec’s long term sustainability will be secured.
