Innovating Low Carbon Technologies and Supporting SME's

Supporting the Commercialisation of Future Low Carbon Technologies and Innovations


We have created an environment where transport, heat and power focused technologies/businesses can receive support and collaboration opportunities in a location that is a key focus of Birmingham’s de-carbonisation efforts.



We offer 4 levels of support dependent on the maturity of your business and technology readiness



The Birmingham Energy Innovation Centre provides R&D, modelling, benchmarking and validation and business support services.

The University of Birmingham’s £7 million Birmingham Energy Innovation Centre (BEIC) has been funded by the Greater Birmingham & Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP).

It will be the home of R&D, benchmarking and validation, business support, manufacturing systems integration and modelling expertise across the (public/private/academic) energy, waste and transportation systems sectors all in the one facility.

Working with existing energy and transportation system stakeholders, the BEIC will stimulate collaborative research and development projects to overcome local energy and low carbon transport challenges, demonstrating new and emerging technologies.

By supporting the development and deployment of these new technologies at scale, the BEIC will help decarbonise electricity and heat and improve the environmental performance of the city as it seeks to achieve net zero CO2 emissions by 2030.



TEP has two programmes of incubation support:


The Climate Innovation Platform (CIP) – kick start support for businesses/technologies in early stages of technology readiness.

The Climate Innovation Platform, sponsored by HSBC and delivered by the University of Birmingham in Partnership with the Energy Systems Catapult offers an integrated package of support to drive the commercialisation of innovative energy products and services. This initiative offers office and workshop space based at Tyseley Energy Park along with access to funding, business development support and a dedicated commercialisation team. 

This funded programme focuses on short term 6-12 support is well aimed at SME’s beginning their journey to commercialisation.

Tyseley Incubator of Clean Energy (TICE) – Supporting SMEs establish their low carbon business offering.

Funded by the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership TICE offers newly refurbished office, laboratory and industrial units for businesses who can build on the innovation and research activity located within the recently constructed Birmingham Energy Innovation Centre (BEIC).

By clustering this activity at TEP the intention is to enable a pathway for businesses to improve their competitiveness, develop collaborative opportunities and deploy game changing low carbon technologies across the region.

This funded programme focuses on mid term 12-36 month support is well aimed at SME’s establishing their businesses.
