Welcome to i-STUTE

i-STUTE is an interdisciplinary centre for Storage, Transformation and Upgrading of Thermal Energy. It develops technologies that aim to reduce energy consumption and deliver cost-effective heating and cooling which will help the UK achieve its target of a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of 80% by 2050.

i-STUTE brings together cutting-edge engineering advances with economic, behavioural and policy expertise to produce solutions that are both technically excellent but also appealing to business, end-users, manufacturers and installers.

The research centre is funded through the UK Research Councils’ Energy Programme. It is a £5.3M project that is developed over 5 years involving four HEIs and an external academic, private and governmental organisation network.

The Centre involves technologists and researchers from the University of Warwick’s School of Engineering and Warwick Business School together with London South Bank University, the University of Ulster and Loughborough University.

Thermal storage in smart energy systems

On the 23rd November the SIRACH network will be visiting The International Energy Research Centre (IERC) in Cork, Ireland.

The event will begin with an overview of the Centre and it's research from Tony Day , Director of the IERC, delegates will then hear a number of industry experts each exploring a different aspect of thermal storage.
