About EKX

As we rise to the energy sector innovation challenge, experts and newcomers alike have great difficulty in accessing knowledge and finding the right people to contact. If you have access to this site, you are part of a growing network of partners to develop the new Energy Knowledge Exchange (EKX) – a free of charge service for innovators.

Our vision: access for innovators to energy knowledge without borders, by enabling web access to knowledge across the innovation spectrum, from academia to industry.

So what’s the problem? How the Energy Knowledge Exchange can help.

Through many consultations, energy innovators and SMEs told us there is great information already contained within many websites, databases and more… but getting access can be difficult and a tool which connects the dots for innovators would be better for all. “There are too many separate energy data Search tools. It would help if they worked together”.
We listened to the needs of innovators and began partnering with the separate providers to unlock resources by means of familiar EKX buttons and links across several energy knowledge sites, enabling you to swiftly navigate the relevant pages across multiple information sites, technical databases, helpful Q&A communities and collaboration and funding resources. We tested a widget for six months and then refined it based on feedback. We try to put user benefits first.

EKX is for anyone who wants to innovate energy from businesses of all sizes and sectors such as engineers, inventors, community energy leaders and strategists helping transform industries and supply chains to a clean intelligent energy system. This includes policy makers and regulators, financiers and research organisation and We want SMEs, Entrepreneurs, Investors, applied researchers and Engineers.

We’re an Energy Knowledge base. Can we add our Knowledge to EKX?

Yes you can. Organisations who want to offer free and easier access for SMEs and host resources that can help energy innovators, please contact us.

We are already working with:

  • UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) –
  • The Energy Networks Association – their portal:
  • The Energy Innovation Centre (EIC) –
  • The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) –
  • The IET – including their Engineering Communities:

We plan to add completed projects, data on outcomes and comparison resources.

You can make your energy publications and resources more discoverable and your organisation can benefit too:

  • Learn with us. Join the Catapult’s EKX Forum and access to our Phase1 reports;
  • Aid the project development and enable wider access to your resources;
  • See real progress: get statistics and analytics to show your resources are benefitting energy innovators and further improve access to knowledge.

Please encourage more energy knowledge owners to contact us:

If you want innovators to discover more of your knowledge, our Catapult team is here to make it easy to adopt EKX on your own website. You can also join other major providers who embed EKX on to thousands of energy webpages and project sites. We’re committed to working with you in partnership – If you haven’t already started getting visitors from EKX or if you want to use the EKX API on your site, please get in touch and take your place in the growing EKX community.

For more information on how you can take part in the upcoming rollout please contact the EKX project manager:
