The University of Strathclyde in Glasgow possesses a large internationally rated Engineering Faculty with a proud history of successful joint ventures with industrial and enterprise partners. The Power Networks Demonstration Centre (PNDC) was established in Wardpark North near Cumbernauld in 2014 with the purpose of accelerating the adoption of new 'smart' technologies within advanced power grids, and supporting the increased accommodation of renewable energy systems, electric vehicles and other low carbon technologies. The £12.5 million Centre was founded by the University of Strathclyde and leading energy companies including Scottish Power Energy Networks and Scottish and Southern Energy Power Distribution, with support from Scottish Enterprise and the Scottish Funding Council. With the addition of UK Power Networks, Vodafone, Cisco and many other partners, the Centre has expanded its membership and this growth is set to continue.

The PNDC is a world-class facility with a team of around 30 dedicated staff. It comprises a purpose-built and flexible test environment to enable the acceleration and de-risking of integrated smart grid solutions to support the realisation of a future decarbonized energy system. There are ambitious plans to grow the facility into a “whole energy systems” test environment, including research activities in heat and transport to complement the existing smart grid activities. The PNDC works with a range of commercial partners and is formally linked to the University through the Institute for Energy and Environment within the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering.
