The UK government has invited companies to bid for a share of the latest round in its renewable energy research and development program worth up to £15 million. The funding will go to the less commercial technologies such as offshore wind, biomass, photovoltaics, wave, tidal, fuel cells and embedded generation. The Department of Trade and Industry's R&D program is looking for industry-led proposals by October 2002, with outline proposals due by July 18. The priorities for offshore R&D under the call for proposals are innovative techniques for construction and deployment of offshore turbine foundations and innovative materials and processes to improve offshore wind turbine performance.
