The University of Sheffield (USHEFF) is ranked as a world top-100 university. We host the UK’s national specialist R&D facilities for combustion and carbon capture research – the Pilot-scale Advanced CO2 Capture Technology (PACT) facilities, bridging the gap between bench-scale R&D and large-scale industrial pilot trials. The new £21+ million Translational Energy Research Centre (TERC, at the University of Sheffield, supported by BEIS and ERDF funding, and operational from September 2020, is involved in a range of research and innovation programmes and projects to support the UK’s transition to a low-carbon economy.

The Energy2050 initiative at USHEFF aims to develop a sustainable, affordable and secure energy supply for the future, focusing on advanced conventional power. The group therefore has extensive knowledge, capabilities and expertise in a range of relevant areas of this research programme; and also has the previous experience of successfully contributing to large-scale, multi-partner projects at national and international levels.
