UCL Energy Institute



Research is the bedrock of the UCL Energy Institute.


UCL Energy Institute was set up to bring together energy research carried out across UCL departments.

Our research has quickly established an international reputation, and contributed strongly to the Faculty’s outstanding showing in the latest Research Excellence Framework.


Our research follows 4 interacting themes:

It ranges in scope from the practical to the theoretical, covering the entire energy journey, from the power station and energy infrastructure to the boiling of a kettle.

It’s research that can only be done in collaboration between disciplines, methods and approaches, from across science, engineering and the social sciences. 

UCL Energy Network

The UCL Energy network was set up to promote collaboration between energy-related researchers across UCL, uniting the work of dozens od schools, departments, centres, and institutes under one banner.
