SPRU - Science Policy Research Unit

The Sussex Energy Group

The Sussex Energy Group is directed by Professor Benjamin K. Sovacool and Dr Karoline Rogge. The Sussex Energy Group aims to understand and foster transitions towards sustainable, low carbon energy systems. Drawing from SPRU’s tradition, we undertake academically rigorous, interdisciplinary and world-leading research that is relevant to contemporary policy challenges. We also educate the next generation of energy policy professionals through our MSc and PhD programmes.


We have launched a new Sussex Energy Group mailing list. Sign up to receive the latest news about our outputs and events.
