Networks and Systems

Our work focusses on developing networks to address fundamental aspects of energy distribution and end use.


Our research focusses on understanding what energy is for and the dynamics of how that is changing.

Carbon Management

Our research focusses on three core areas of carbon management- carbon capture and storage, carbon sequestration, and carbon utilisation.


Renewable Energies

Our research focusses on four key sources of renewable energy- water energy, wind energy, solar energy, and bio energy.
