ETL Research Programme

The annual ETL Research Programme defines the criteria for products on the list.

 

Research Programme 2020/21

The Energy Technology List Research Programme takes place annually to assess the criteria for the technologies featured on the list and to consider the introduction of new technologies on the list. The criteria are updated to ensure that the products featured on the list continue to be in the top quartile in terms of energy efficiency. On average, the criteria for each technology criteria is updated every 3 – 4 years.

Details of the 2020/21 Research Programme can be seen in the tables below. The technical reviews and scoping studies will commence in May with desk-based research and proposal development. The second phase of the programme will involve stakeholder workshops in July. Following the workshops, a report will be submitted to BEIS in Autumn. If you are a manufacturer or supplier of the products listed below, please contact ETL@icf.com to take part in the stakeholder workshops and to provide input into the Research Programme.
