Our Research

Working together for a rapid transition to clean and affordable energy.

We created the Centre for Energy at Newcastle University in 2019, bringing together our significant portfolio of energy research.

Despite well-intentioned ambition, the UK and other nations are not on track to tackle and prepare for climate change. In the UK, 31% of greenhouse gas emissions are as a result of our energy use in buildings and in generating electricity. Energy use in the transport sector is also a major contributor (34%) of greenhouse gas emissions.

The Centre for Energy unites our people in working together, to tackle the global need for a rapid transition to clean affordable energy.

We are a platform for cross-disciplinary collaborative energy research. We mentor early career researchers.

Stakeholders from across industry and government are crucial too. They help shape our research and translate discoveries to impact.

From molecules to systems, small to large scale, across many applications, we can effect change.

We will transition society to clean, affordable energy.
