The Energy Technology Centre (ETC) currently provides a resource for the development and testing of a range of small scale renewable energy systems. A suite of test cells with associated operator control rooms allows the safe operation of devices featuring rotating machinery, electricity generation, combustion systems and hazardous fluids.
Typical examples of technologies which the ETC can support include :

• Small/Micro CHP

• Small/Micro wind turbines

• Fuel cells

• Alternative fuels

• Solar and PV

• Component durability

The facility is made up of two buildings formed around a central courtyard. The buildings themselves are made up of a variety of different types and materials due to previous extensions, alterations and additions. Building 1 is a 1950’s concrete framed, flat roofed building with high-bay workshop to one end and offices to the other. Building 2 is primarily 1970’s cavity wall construction with a flat roof.
