Sir Joseph Swan Centre for Energy Research

The overarching focus of our energy research is to address three key challenges to ensure a sustainable future.... "enough, for all, for ever".



Ensuring that there is sufficient energy to meet demand through appropriate and secure resources, and the efficient and resilient conversion, distribution and use of energy.

For all


Guaranteeing universal access to affordable energy to meet demand through technological developments and effective policy and governance.



Safeguarding sustainable resources, the natural environment and the health and well-being of all life through environmentally sensitive practices, processes and systems.
