UCL Energy Institute



UCL-Energy has links with most of the main companies interested in energy research, including the major energy suppliers, component and product manufactures.

We have developed partnerships with industry involving advice and joint research, including £1 million of industrial funding.

Our partnerships with industry are bespoke, and different models can be explored.

UCL Advances offers training, networking opportunities and support to businesses, as well as to staff and students at UCL.
