Energy Technology Group

Wind turbines

We research modern scientific and technological challenges faced by the world, with a focus on energy efficiency, emerging energy technologies and sustainability.

Part of Engineering


We explore new approaches to energy efficiency and develop new sustainable technology. Our activities are supported by the latest computing and experimental facilities and are funded by research councils, TSB, industry and the EU. 

Our 8 research laboratories cover these mainstream and renewable energy technologies: 

  • thermal energy 
  • institute of cryogenics 
  • electrochemical engineering 
  • solar energy 
  • maritime energy 
  • electromechanical energy 
  • materials for energy 
  • energy management and control
