Policy is an important element that helps accelerate the application of research outputs. ENTEC promotes not only research and innovation that can support the development and industrial deployment of energy technologies, but also those that assist policy makers in determining the direction of the energy policy.
ENTEC also entered into the arena of energy resilience, aiming to achieve sustainable use of innovative energy systems in order to get in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. A pilot project on the evaluation of resilience of various renewable energy systems was conducted. The scope of the study will be further extended to address issues at energy infrastructure level in order to enhance the sustainability of the whole energy system.
R&D on energy policy and resilience will support smooth translation of research outputs from all other five pillars to the actual applications.
