Re-energising the North workshops: fostering new interdisciplinary collaborations to address today’s biggest energy challenges
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, oil and gas, 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 societys transition to a sustainable energy future.
