University of Birmingham – investing in energy innovation

The University of Birmingham has invested more than £3million of quality-related (QR) research funding in a new facility that is driving the development of innovative energy technologies in partnership with Government and industry. The Tyesley Energy Park (TEP) is an energy innovation zone that is helping shape how Birmingham develops infrastructure for renewable heat and power, energy storage, clean transport fuels and advanced waste processing. The University of Birmingham is using facilities at TEP to support Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund work that will deliver new full-scale rare earth magnet recycling facilities.  It is also developing robotic disassembly pilot lines for recycling batteries, automotive components and electronics to extract critical materials.
