Centre for Energy


Centre for Energy

A Newcastle University Centre of Research Excellence

We will unify efforts and raise ambitions towards a new way of thinking about energy systems.

Energy's role in climate change

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 1.5°C special report was key.

It brought clarity to the scientific evidence on the impacts of global warming.

The role of the energy system in climate change mitigation is crucial.

Our work informs global/national policies on climate change and carbon emissions reduction.

Effecting change through collaborative research

We are a platform for cross-disciplinary collaborative 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.
