The university’s wider research team includes the UK’s top five most influential climate scientists – the only five to be included in the global top 21 – and our region is home to four times as many clean energy scientists than any other in the UK. The work of these experts and innovators, their experience and understanding, feeds into and informs our revolutionary work in renewable energy and it’s governance.
Exeter Energy brings together over 140 individuals from across all disciplines at the University of Exeter to collectively understand and facilitate transformation to sustainable energy systems.
Our research spans a wide array of renewable energy technologies including solar, offshore, geothermal and sustainably produced electricity as we strive to find and develop the solutions that can meet the world’s demand for clean energy and help integrate them through policy and procedure.
We’re exploring the opportunities to find the smart power systems and energy storage solutions that will power an electric future in efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly ways. We’re innovating offshore energy installations to increase reliability.
We’re developing the huge potential of solar energy to provide clean power around the world with advanced technologies that are more powerful and easier to integrate.
We’re shaping policy making in the UK energy sector to speed radical transformation and the journey to net zero. This includes understanding the role of governance, regulation, markets and business models in sustainable energy transformations. We aim to create a systemic change to force much needed action on the production of energy to help reach important climate targets.
And, over the next 20 years, our aim is to continue to educate the next generation and enable a net zero future for a cleaner world.
Our Energy Policy Group (EPG) is the only academic research group in the UK focusing on enabling government-level policy and regulatory change that is essential...Read More
