Energy Environmental impact

It is almost inconceivable to study energy provision without some consideration of its environmental impacts.

Fundamentally our research on renewable and lower carbon technologies is based on the premise of harmful climate change resulting from anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions from excessive fossil fuel use.

Our diverse research on the environmental impacts of energy systems is truly interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary, touching a range of academic disciplines and including staff from each Faculty in the University to answer what are often truly global challenges.
