A sustainable energy future

Video transcript: A sustainable energy future - Energy Leeds

Energy Leeds is working to tackle one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century – to develop and maintain clean, secure and affordable supplies as part of a sustainable energy future.

The University has a vibrant community of energy researchers and is equipped to tackle the energy challenge by drawing on scientific, technical, environmental, economic, political and societal and behavioural expertise. This gives us a distinctive capability to understand whole energy systems from an inter-disciplinary perspective.

We are working to advance research in key areas including bioenergy, nuclear energy, heating and cooling, transport, energy demand and efficiency and low carbon transitions. We host a number of specialist facilities, and with a strong track record of working with industry, business and government we are at the forefront of society’s transition to a sustainable energy future.
