Energy @ Edinburgh

Energy @ Ed's vision is to galvanise multi-disciplinary energy expertise at the University of Edinburgh along with partners, local and global, to address climate change and decarbonisation by providing access to clean, affordable, secure and sustainable sources of energy.

We are an interconnected community of 200 researchers working with research institutes and centres across 10 academic schools recognising that "energy systems and technologies are social as well as technical". Our research aligns with the Energy Trilemna and feeds into the UN Sustainable Development Goals. In order to meet the social and technical challenges we collaborate closely across a number of highly connected research themes, which also involve external partners from industry, local and national government, communities, regulatory and trade bodies, as well as other university partners, all at a national and international level.
