New energy technology research

Welcome to our new energy technologies research case studies

Around 80 per cent of global energy is still derived from fossil fuels. To preserve a safe and stable climate there is a pressing need to increase renewable and sustainable energy systems. To dramatically increase their efficiency, smart systems are required that link supply, storage and use, and join up power, heating and transport.

Our experts work across ‘all scales of energy’, from a solar cell of a few watts to the multi MW scale of a city, across bioenergy,  carbon capture, climate change, energy and buildings, automotive engineering, fuel cells and batteries, photovoltaics and wave and tidal.

Studying problems from a fundamental, technical and applied perspective, our research fully relates to policy, infrastructure, resilience and adaptability. It is underpinned by a common approach of minimising energy requirements and maximising resource efficiency and impact reduction.
