Queen’s University Belfast recently announced it will host a new £7 million (~ $11 million) research center intended to pioneer advances in sustainable energy technologies. The Centre for Advanced Sustainable Energy (CASE) is reportedly creating 15 new research posts and will focus on the development of highly innovative technologies for the sustainable energy sector. The industry-led center will draw upon the research capabilities of Queen’s, the University of Ulster and the Agri-Food Biosciences Institute (AFBI). CASE has been offered £5 million (~ $8 million) from Invest NI, supporting industry-led research in a key strategic sector for the Northern Ireland economy.

“Today’s turnout by industry at the CASE launch is testament to the fact that interest in research, development and innovation in energy is a key business focus,” said Sam McCloskey of Queen’s University Environmental Science and Technology Research Centre and CASE Center manager. “Our rationale is to support these companies to compete in the global sustainable energy market by funding industry led research and innovation in strategic renewable energy fields such as turbines, demand side management and energy from biomass.

“CASE will be the conduit that drives industry research, providing access to world class researchers and facilities thereby maximizing the opportunities for proactive businesses taking first mover advantage.”
