The Sussex Energy Group

Research

Our central research interests are in the prospects for a more sustainable energy future. The primary focus is on the processes of innovation, technological and social, that will contribute to this objective, using a range of multi-disciplinary social science approaches. Most of our research is problem-driven and we work on both energy supply and energy demand issues.   We are strongly engaged with stakeholders, especially those interested in public policy in the UK, the EU and more widely, and aim to place our work in the wider energy contexts of security and access as well as the implications of climate change.
