Research Themes

UCL Australia applies a systems approach to energy and resources research across sectors (government, industry, communities) and disciplines (technology, natural and social sciences, economics and law). UCL Australia has a particular focus on:

  • systems modelling (process optimisation, project organisation and management)
  • impact assessment (environment, society, economy)
  • decision support (governance, business models)
  • policy analysis and assessment (energy security, climate change, regional and national priorities)
  • innovation opportunities and impacts (disruptive technologies, open and social innovation, incentives and barriers).

Our research is interdisciplinary, linking the three units within UCL Australia – the School of Energy and Resources, the International Energy Policy Institute and the Mullard Space Science Laboratory (Australia). Although each unit has its own research strategy and agenda, there is a common alignment with the UCL Grand Challenges of Global Health, Sustainable Cities, Intercultural Interaction and Human Wellbeing.
The UCL Grand Challenges  concentrate specialist expertise across UCL and beyond to address aspects of the world's key problems. It also provides an environment in which researchers are encouraged to think about how their work can intersect with and impact upon global issues.
