The Sussex Energy Group undertakes academically rigorous, inter-disciplinary research that engages with policy-makers and practitioners. The aim of our research is to identify ways of achieving the transition to sustainable, low carbon energy systems whilst addressing other important policy objectives such as energy security. We have funding from a diverse array of sources. We are core partner in the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research and part of the UK Energy Research Centre.
Sussex Energy Group's research into the implications of changing energy policy
With climate change one of the biggest issues of the modern age, changing energy consumption and moving from a high- to low-carbon economy is more critical than ever.
The Sussex Energy Group uses an interdisciplinary research approach that is the hallmark of Sussex to understand the social, political and economic implications of radically changing our energy systems and moving towards a more sustainable future.
