Energy and Climate Change

Welcome to our Energy and Climate Change research case studies


Energy and Climate Change research at the University of Southampton supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with fundamental and applied research across six research themes: Renewable Energy, Energy Access, Cities & Infrastructure, Buildings & Communities, Behaviour & Modelling and Climate & Emissions.

Our research is mainly within the spheres of two University-wide centres: the Sustainable Energy Research Group and the Centre for Coastal Processes, Offshore and Coastal Hydrodynamics, and includes staff from the National Oceanography Centre Southampton. We use state-of-the-art research facilities and contribute to relevant education programmes.
