From renewable energy to waste transformation, our researchers are designing the technology to drive us towards a clean and sustainable future.
We carry out internationally-recognised research in the fields of energy and power networks and intelligent grid technologies towards the development of future electrical power grids.
We focus on clean energy technologies and their role in mitigating climate change, and explore new ways to help deliver sustainable energy solutions on a global scale.
We promote and support collaborative academic and industry-sponsored research in energy harvesting and energy efficiency, water quality and water resources management, wind engineering, and environmental modelling.
We aim to significantly decrease carbon emissions by optimising existing systems and processes, and developing new systems within the energy and materials production sector.
Our researchers aim to create a cleaner future by producing cost-effective and sustainable chemical processes for a wide range of industries.
More waste is being produced than ever before. Through nationwide research and industry partnerships, we can transform this waste into reusable materials and move towards a circular economy.
From effective water treatment to waste transformation, our researchers are developing innovative solutions to help us achieve a truly sustainable future.
Analysing the turbulence in a gently flowing river might spoil the poetry of the moment. But if that gentle flow becomes a destructive torrent, understanding its behaviour becomes crucial. Professor Ben Thornber is working to make that complex task much easier.
