Connecting Strathclyde’s expertise to the design and development of energy policy

The global energy landscape is changing fast, as a result of economic and technological shifts and advances in our understanding of the implications of climate change. The drive for more efficient and cost effective energy has never been greater.

The Centre for Energy Policy is helping to sustain and safeguard our energy supply, while maintaining international commitments to cut carbon emissions in the short, medium and long term.

Energy is a key sector for the University and the Centre works closely with other Strathclyde-based expertise including the Engineering Faculty, Strathclyde Business School, the Law School, the headquarters of the UK’s £50 million Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult, and the University’s Technology and Innovation Centre, to pursue multidisciplinary research, knowledge exchange and education in the energy policy arena.

The Centre for Energy Policy's focus is on the design and delivery of policies that relate to:

  • Energy Production
  • Security of Energy Supply
  • Sustainability of Energy Supply
  • Economic and Environmental Impacts of Energy Policies´╗┐
