Heat Energy Research Theme ETP has been establishing a new research theme on “Heat Energy” in response to the Scottish Government’s emerging priority in the area of heat energy. To establish a broad R&D network focusing on heat energy across Scotland, involving both academia and industry. To provide a point of contact for the Scottish government when such expertise is needed. To create an interface between the academia and industry To facilitate collaboration and knowledge exchange in this area.
