Our vision is to bring together the expertise of
the Universities of Nottingham, Sheffield and Cardiff, industrial sponsors, and
cohorts of doctoral students to tackle major challenges facing industry and
Our goal is to support major reductions in society’s carbon footprint by finding radically different ways to operate our existing energy systems. We need to reduce or eliminate their carbon dioxide emissions to address climate change concerns and eliminate use of fossil fuels while ensuring affordable and reliable energy.
Would you like to support our goal?
The Centre is designed to be industrially focussed. We ensure that all the projects are targeted at meeting specific current and future needs of our partners. We work with numerous companies which cover a broad range of energy-intensive industries. You will spend time working closely with one or more industrial sponsors.
