Institute of Energy



The Institute of Energy is an innovative and pioneering research centre with a mission to advance energy technology and play a key role in addressing the increasing demand for sustainable and low carbon technologies.

The Institute encompasses high quality research, education and training to address predicted skills shortages in the field of sustainable energy as the UK works towards the Government's targets for the reduction of CO2 emissions. 

We have the large scale facilities necessary to move research towards demonstrating the viability of technology and we engage and interact extensively with industry and academia to have an impact on increasing UK capacity and capability in sustainable energy technologies.

Our varied but complementary expertise allows not only in-depth investigation of particular aspects of energy technologies, but also assessment of entire energy systems and evaluation of their costs and benefits.
