Delivering integration of photovoltaics and storage technologies into power networks for improving living standards
The Joint UK-India Clean Energy Centre (JUICE) is helping to decarbonise energy. Both the UK and India have ambitious targets to deploy renewable energy including wind and solar power but the challenge of integrating these intermittent sources remains. Despite the difference in geographic scale between the two countries, the needs for energy storage, demand management and flexible electricity networks have much in common. JUICE brings together leading energy researchers from ten UK universities with their counterparts across India to share experience and develop technologies critical to the future of sustainable energy systems.
JUICE is funded in the UK by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and builds on expertise developed in their Supergen projects on energy networks, photovoltaics and storage technologies. In India, the Department of Science and Technology (DST) is funding both the India-UK Centre for Education and Research in Clean Energy (IUCERCE) and the UK-India Clean Energy Research Institute (UKICERI). Collectively these projects form the Joint Virtual Clean Energy Centre.
