Organisation profile

Our work in energy brings together Strathclyde researchers from across the disciplines to address the many energy challenges of the 21st Century, including reducing the environmental impact of energy use, improving energy efficiency, coping with declining fossil fuel supplies and managing an ageing energy infrastructure.

As one of the largest energy research clusters in Europe, and host to the pioneering Technology & Innovation Centre, Strathclyde offers a huge range of leading expertise across a variety of specialist groups along with world-leading laboratories, unique demonstration facilities and cutting-edge analytical tools.

Whether through expert consultancy, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) or bespoke research, Strathclyde researchers are routinely involved in highly successful collaborations and stand ready to contribute their expertise for the benefit of our partners in industry, government and wider society.

Our work in energy falls into eight broad categories that span a wide-ranging spectrum of activities, from research into resource extraction right through to support for energy policy formulation.
