Energy is a key driver of economic and sustainable social welfare. It is an essential prerequisite for modern industry and commerce. The need to decarbonise the energy supply is generally accepted and solar photovoltaics (PV) will play a large role in this in both the UK and India.

Project Overview

The two countries have seen very rapid installation since both countries introduced their respective market stimulation programmes in 2010, cumulative installations have risen to 5GW (India) and 8.5 GW (UK) by December 2015. This has had a very significant impact on the power system and may endanger quality of supply or grid reliability. JUICE will focus on tools to understand and quantify the associated issues, find the most economical way to ameliorate or control the issues generated.

JUICE will mobilise significant resources to connect the research verticals of Power Networks, Solar and Storage, which are driven in the UK by the three SuperGen consortia: HubNet, SuperSolar and SuperStore. This will be achieved by a vertical research programme focussing on clean energy provision, clean energy utilisation and economic value. JUICE will have a close relation with two Indian centres (IUCERCE and UKICERI) to deliver research to enhance the standard of living in both countries by improving the quality of power available, or make power available, to the populations in both countries.
