The Renewable Energy Innovation Centre (RENEW) was created in October 2019 and is a strategic partnership between the University of Bedfordshire and TWI. Its aim is to become a world-class hub for engineering based, renewable energy research and development, bringing novel, enabling and disruptive technologies to the market place.
The Centre will carry out R&D programmes designed to identify, test and qualify new sustainable energy technologies that will form the basis of tomorrow’s novel systems, applications and solutions for the renewable energy industry.
The digital transformation of energy production and usage has powerful potential to bring more efficiency, flexibility and coordination to the management of energy and its associated processes.
RENEW will reflect this by advancing innovative systems that can enhance the performance and efficiency of low carbon power generation assets, leading to improved efficiency, and reduced operational and maintenance costs.
