18 April 2011

The Energy Research Partnership (ERP) aims to enable the UK to become a world leader in the development of innovative new technologies, with a membership drawn from the country’s public and private organizations with a role in energy innovation

The ERP provides a high-level forum for collaboration within the UK, bringing together key funders of energy research and innovation from government, industry, academia, plus other bodies with relevant interests, to work together towards shared goals. In doing so it acts as a generator and sounding board for ideas across the full spectrum of energy research and innovation. Ricardo has been invited to join this important UK organization alongside fellow members drawn from the power generation, distribution, and energy sectors.

Commenting on the company’s membership of the Energy Research Partnership, Ricardo chief technology and innovation officer Prof. Neville Jackson said:
“The energy sector is an increasingly important aspect of Ricardo’s business as we strive to help our auto industry customers to reduce the carbon intensity of road transportation as well as serving the research, engineering and product innovation needs of new customers in sectors such as power generation and renewable energy. I am pleased therefore to be able to accept the invitation for Ricardo to join the Energy Research Partnership and look forward to being able to make progress to our collective goals to promote innovation, growth and increasing sustainability in this important part of the country’s economy.”
