Midlands Consortium delighted to be chosen to host £1 billion energy institute
Date:9/21/2007

Representatives from the Midlands Consortium say they are absolutely delighted by todays announcement that the group has been chosen to host a new 1billion national institute to develop cleaner energies.

The Midlands Consortium is comprised of the universities of Birmingham, Loughborough and Nottingham three world-class partners, all with extensive and complementary energy related research activities. Generous financial support has been provided, in a unique cross-border arrangement, by both Advantage West Midlands and the East Midlands Development Agency (emda).

The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) is being established to speed up the deployment of new low-carbon energy technologies, including the efficient production and use of energy, in support of the UKs energy and climate change goals. It will also increase funding and provide a national strategic focus for research and development in this area and promote international technology collaboration.

Jointly funded by Government and industry, the ETI brings together some of the worlds biggest companies BP, Caterpillar, EDF Energy, E.ON UK, Rolls-Royce and Shell. Their funding contribution, along with that of the Government, provides the Institute with a potential budget of more than 600 million over 10 years. The involvement of other private companies could boost the cash pot up to 1 billion.

Professor Michael Sterling, Vice-Chancellor and Principal of the University of Birmingham, said: We are delighted that the Midlands Consortium has won the bid to host the Energy Technologies Institute. At Birmingham we have a proud heritage in science and engineering and our large scale Institute for Energy Research and Policy will make a real contribution to the work of the consortium.

Professor Sir Colin Campbell, Vice Chancellor of the University of Nottingham, added: British higher education and research is one of the UK economy's greatest success stories. Today'
