The new partnership between the innovation centre and the trade body was signed in front of 100 guests at the official opening of the Energy Systems Catapult offices in Birmingham last week.
On signing the agreement, Philip New, Catapult chief executive said: “It’s exciting to mark the official opening of our new office in Birmingham with the signing of this collaboration agreement with Beama.
“The energy revolution is happening – and it is only through collaboration – with industry, policy-makers, academia and customers – that we can achieve real, exponential change in creating a cleaner, smarter and fairer energy system.”
As part of the agreement the Catapult will become a member of the strategic Beama Energy Systems group. The two organisations will also seek to deliver joint project opportunities and will share best practice, initiatives and experience.
The Catapult and Beama have already collaborated on a range of areas including a potential project for the Midlands engine, an industry led sector plan on Low Carbon Digital buildings and electricity networks, as well as exploring ways to assist UK energy innovators to better access international markets.
