Supergen Energy Networks Hub



Supergen Energy Networks Hub

The Hub, led by Director, Professor Phil Taylor and Deputy Director, Dr Sara Walker, will provide leadership, research, and networking for the energy networks community.  

Hub's Mission

Despite their vital importance to the UK's energy sector, industry and society, there is no current whole systems approach to studying the interconnected and interdependent nature of energy network infrastructure and the challenges it faces. The Hub will establish a vibrant, well-connected, diverse, open and communicative energy networks community with a deeper understanding of whole systems approaches to energy networks.


The Hub will integrate a wide range of stakeholders while complementing national and international investments in energy networks, allowing all stakeholders to fully exploit opportunities in the sector.

Research Approach

Each of the Supergen Energy Networks Co-investigators will lead on key strands of the Hub's activities.  

  • Leadership and Engagement (Taylor)
  • Equality Diversity and Inclusion (Walker)
  • Industry (Terzija)
  • Demonstrators and Experimentation (Wu)
  • International Horizon Scanning (Li)
  • Early Career researchers (Preece)

We are currently conducting an Equality Diversity and Inclusion audit of the energy networks sector, you can help by completing our short annonymous survey.  Further information on can be found on our first blog ‘Addressing Equality Diversity and Inclusion in Engineering’.
