University research to develop technologies which could transform electricity system

Description
The University of Birmingham has won a £6m grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to create a new Centre for Cryogenic Energy Storage, which will be housed on the University's campus.

The funding is part of an investment of £85 million to support university research announced by David Willetts, Minister for Universities and Science.
