Energy

Over the next ten years, global and European energy investments in the order of £4.3 trillion and over £1 trillion are needed, respectively, both to diversify existing resources and replace equipment and to cater for challenging and changing energy requirements.

The UK’s sector is valued at £116 billion with almost 910,000 jobs. Moving to a green economy therefore presents huge opportunities for British businesses, not only to reduce their environmental impact, but also to transform products and services, develop cleaner technologies, and capture new international markets.

The University of Leeds is in a unique and very strong position to be a major player to act as a catalyst to motivate and help industry innovate and deal with the associated technical challenges.

Energy Leeds brings together multidisciplinary research and innovation expertise at the frontiers of energy and environmental research to work with regional, national, and international stakeholders in industry, academia and government.
