    International panel to review UK research on renewable and sustainable energy.

    The UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council is recruiting an international panel of scientists from academia, industry and other sectors to assess the country's energy-research programme. This will be the first ever review of energy research being carried out with funding from the UK government's research councils. Among the areas to be assessed are renewable and conventional energy sources, sustainable energy, and energy-demand reduction. The panel will conduct its review next April, and will present its results to the UK research community and the seven research councils. The assessment is part of the councils' oversight of the disciplines in which they fund research.
