FLEXIS aims to promote and develop projects on Flexible Integrated Energy Systems.
FLEXIS is a pan-Wales energy research project. Led by Cardiff University, FLEXIS includes the leading energy academics from Cardiff University, Swansea University and the University of South Wales, FLEXIS will focus on the development of an energy systems research capability in Wales, building on the world-class capability that already exists in these Universities in the energy area.
The project will tackle some of the most pressing issues currently facing society, such as climate change, rising energy prices and fuel poverty.
The main objectives of the project will be to develop collaborations with companies that will result in an increase in research funding coming into Wales, which in turn will result in a substantial increase in the number of good quality researchers working in this area.
GTRC is leading on work programmes concerning ‘Flexible Powerplant’, ‘Integrated Storage and Power’, and ‘CCS and industrial gases’.
