Energy Energy policy

Local, regional, national and global energy landscapes are changing fast.

This presents real challenges to society, industry, commerce and governments as they seek to develop relevant and appropriate strategies in an environment where policymakers are faced with multiple, often competing societal objectives.

We're at the forefront of research into the supply and use of energy in all its forms

Researchers at Strathclyde are at the forefront of multi-discipline research into the supply and use of energy in all its forms, helping the efficiency and flexibility of the energy system, and the feasibility and performance of new energy solutions.

However, we recognise that this must be set in a wider policy context, considering how energy solutions may involve a range of policy actions and with attention to impacts and influence on and of a range of societal and economic factors.

Key expertise in energy policy analysis includes expertise in the macroeconomic modelling of energy policy actions and more generally bringing evidence based critical thinking to addressing the challenges of competing social, economic and energy policy objectives.

Partners from across the University and our external collaborators work together to bring current research from a wide energy base into the public debate.
