The initial core of HEAPD Project is formed of seven universities, which together give broad coverage of the energy networks space from both the UK and India perspective. This UK-India collaboration will provide an expert insight into smart grid planning, operation and pricing, dynamic stability, power electronics applications and energy conversion, power system protection, as well as analysis of network flexibility, energy storage and demand response.

The two-nation cross-fertilisation will make sure that the impact of our research is not only limited to developed nations but also to developing nations transition to a low carbon economy.
