The Centre for Energy Policy informs and challenges the work of policymakers in energy and related areas.
The Centre has particular expertise in the macroeconomic modelling of energy and it works with partners across the university to bring current research from a wide energy base into the public debate. The global energy landscape is changing fast. This presents challenges to society, industry, commerce and governments as they seek to develop relevant and appropriate strategies.
The role of the Centre for Energy Policy is to bring evidence based critical thinking to addressing these challenges in all economic sectors. The Centre works closely with the Engineering Faculty, Strathclyde Business School, the Law School, the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult, and the University’s Technology & Innovation Centre to pursue interdisciplinary research, knowledge exchange and education in the energy policy arena.
