The University of Nottingham Energy Institute has been relaunched, with a new strategic focus and a fresh new look to match.
Energy activities now focus on the three key societal challenges of ‘Transport and Mobility’, ‘Energy Generation and Management’ and ‘Communities and the Built Environment’.
The Transport and Mobility challenge explores the sustainable future of how people, goods and services move, improving the sustainability of systems and how energy is used within them.
The Energy Generation and Management challenge finds new ways to harness clean energy and efficiently convert it to electricity and fuels, while developing new business models and influencing policy.
The Communities and Built Environment challenge addresses rapid urbanisation, increasing populations, climate change and resource scarcity through pioneering research and wide scale collaboration.
The new institute builds on over 25 years of energy expertise and brings together the Faculties of Social Sciences, Science and Engineering alongside external partners for a truly multidisciplinary approach.
Several major multimillion-pound projects are already underway that include communities, industrial partners, local authorities, and organisations with similar aims. Examples include:
Professor David Grant, Director of the new Energy Institute, commented “If we are to transition to a future energy system that enhances clean growth and human well-being, we must develop real-world solutions to complex socio-technical challenges. By working together, we create the required collaborative research environment to meet this challenge.”
The Energy Institute welcomes opportunities to collaborate. Enquiries from organisations working in the energy field are welcome.
