The UCL Energy Institute brings together different perspectives, understandings and procedures in energy research, transcending the boundaries between academic disciplines. It coordinates multidisciplinary teams from across the university, providing critical mass and capacity for ambitious projects. The UCL Energy Institute has a particular focus on the area of energy-demand reduction, designed to speed the transition to a low-energy, low-carbon economy and to sustain human civilisation through the 21st century and beyond.
The launch will follow this format:
- 18.00 - Welcome by Professor Tadj Oreszczyn, Director of the UCL Energy Institute
- 18.15 - Introduction by Professor Malcolm Grant, UCL President and Provost
- 18.30 - Speech by Lord Hunt, Minister of State for Sustainable Development and Energy Innovation

Numbers of attendees at the launch are limited. If you would like to attend, please contact Tola Okogwu, UCL Grand Challenges at j.okogwu[at]ucl.ac.uk by Monday 22nd June 2009. A final agenda will be provided once registration is confirmed.
This promises to be a very interesting and worthwhile event that will showcase UCL's interdisciplinary strengths in energy research.
